This Is Water

From the well-known commencement speech by David Foster Wallace, who committed suicide two years later, a victim of depression. But while this makes the clip above more poignant, he was a brilliant novelist, a superb teacher (I've used portions of his syllabus as inspiration for mine) and a family man who contributed much to the world.
