Since graduation is right around the corner for many, I thought I'd share a favorite commencement speech of mine.  David Foster Wallace delivered this speech to graduates of Kenyon College in 2005.  He is one of my favorite writers and arguably one of the greatest thinkers to emerge on the scene in the last fifty years.  The commencement speech focuses on life and work, two topics that graduates and non-graduates alike will find relevant.

Do you have a favorite commencement speech or words of wisdom for almost graduates?  Feel free to share below.

*audio version of the speech can be found here.
