This is Water
By David Foster Wallace23 min
There are these two young fish swimming along and they happen to meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nods at them and says “Morning, boys. How’s the water?” And the two young fish swim on for a bit, and then eventually one of them looks over at the other and goes “What the hell is water?”
A classic of the “commencement speech” genre and a powerful defense of the importance of inner freedom.
