David Foster Wallace | The Real Value of Education

"It is about the real value of a real education, which has nothing to do with grades or degrees and everything to do with simple awareness - awareness of what is so real and essential, so hidden in plain sight all around us, that we have to remind ourselves over and over."
David Foster Wallace, This Is Water

* I plan on giving this short essay to my students on the first day of class with their syllabus when I am a professor.
