David Foster Wallace (1962-2008) “You will become way less concerned with what other people think of you when you realize how seldom they do.”
"The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad petty little unsexy ways, every day.... The only thing that's capital-T True is that you get to decide how you're going to try to see it. You get to consciously decide what has meaning and what doesn't.... The trick is keeping the truth up-front in daily consciousness." -David Foster Wallace

'The David Foster Wallace Industry - Publishers and scholars say that the Internet fans who flocked to Wallace were able to create an instant online archive in the wake of his death... It is like the long tail, only in reverse, where a small coterie of fans keep the work alive online long enough for the rest of the culture to discover it.' #DavidFosterWallace #TheCultureIndustry
“The really important kind of freedom involves attention, and awareness, and discipline, and effort, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them, over and over, in myriad petty little unsexy ways, every day.” ― David Foster Wallace, This is Water
David Foster Wallace 15 years before his suicide: "I think what I would like my stuff to do is make people less lonely"
I'm screaming for help and everybody's acting as if I'm singing Ethel Merman covers... - David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest
The truth will set you free. But not until it is finished with you. -David Foster Wallace
"Fiction is one of the few experiences where loneliness can be both confronted and relieved. Drugs, movies where stuff blows up, loud parties — all these chase away loneliness by making me forget my name’s Dave and I live in a one-by-one box of bone no other party can penetrate or know. Fiction, poetry, music, really deep serious sex, and, in various ways, religion — these are the places (for me) where loneliness is countenanced, stared down, transfigured, treated." -David Foster Wallace

David Foster Wallace: “Really good writing [is] able to get across massive amounts of information and various favorable impressions of the communicator with minimal effort on the part of the reader.”
"In the broadest possible sense, writing well means to communicate clearly and interestingly and in a way that feels alive to the reader. Where there’s some kind of relationship between the writer and the reader — even though it’s mediated by a kind of text — there’s an electricity about it." ~ David Foster Wallace on Writing, Self-Improvement, and How We Become Who We Are (2006 interview)

David Foster Wallace (I do miss him his writings... his Harpers magazine articles :: http://harpers.org/archive/2008/09/hbc-90003557 Rest in peace...)
“The truth will set you free. But not until it is finished with you.” ― David Foster Wallace
"When they say that he was a generational writer, that he "spoke for a generation," there's a sense in which it's almost scientifically true. Everything we know about the way literature gets made suggests there's some connection between the individual talent and the society that produces it, the social organism. Cultures extrude geniuses the way a beehive will make a new queen when its old one dies, and it's possible now to see David Foster Wallace as one of those."

Anything by David Foster Wallace
Precious. David Foster Wallace
Here's something that Mint CCO Al Navarro has recommended to anyone he cares about (including all of us here at Mint). It's a commencement address given by the late writer David Foster Wallace to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. This speech eventually became a book, entitled "This is water." It's not new, but don't let that stop you.

"The really important kind of freedom involves attention and awareness and discipline, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them over and over in myriad petty, unsexy ways every day." (More DFW at Kenyon commencement)
This is the comencement address David Foster Wallace gave to the graduates of Kenyon College in 2005. Poignant, tragic even, in view of subsequent events ... but still very wise and well worth a read.
DAVID FOSTER WALLACE In His Own Words This is a reiteration of what I try and remind myself to do. I think I'll read it every week until its memorized, just to have a reminder about what being human means.
DAVID FOSTER WALLACE in his own words "...a huge percentage of the stuff that I tend to be automatically certain of is, it turns out, totally wrong and deluded... learning how to think really means learning how to exercise some control over how and what you think. It means being conscious and aware enough to choose what you pay attention to and to choose how you construct meaning from experience."
I keep this on my Kindle and I try to read this three or four times a year. David Foster Wallace. This is the comencement address he gave to the graduates of Kenyon College in 2005.
"David Foster Wallace, In His Own Words" - Commencement address given to the students of Kenyon College in 2005. Beautiful and so, so important.
In dark times, the definition of good art would seem to be art that locates and applies CPR to those elements of what's human and magical that still live and glow despite the times' darkness. Really good fiction could have as dark a worldview as it wished, but it'd find a way both to depict this world and to illuminate the possibilities for being alive and human in it. -David Foster Wallace (rip)

DAVID FOSTER WALLACE: "...almost nothing important that ever happens to you happens because you engineer it. Destiny has no beeper; destiny always leans trenchcoated out of an alley with some sort of 'psst' that you usually can't even hear because you're in such a rush to or from something important you've tried to engineer."
David Foster Wallace, American Novelist. Suicide by hanging: "I’d like to be the sort of person who can enjoy things at the time, instead of having to go back in my head and enjoy them."

"En las trincheras cotidianas de la vida adulta no existe tal cosa como el ateísmo. No existe tal cosa como no idolatrar. Todos idolatran. "La única opción es qué idolatrar. Y la razón sobresaliente para seleccionar a algún tipo de Dios o cosa de tipo espiritual para idolatrar —sea J.C. o Alá, Yahvé o la Diosa Madre o las Cuatro Nobles Verdades o un conjunto de principios éticos inquebrantables— es que casi cualquier otra cosa que idolatras te comerá vivo."

“You’ll worry less about what people think about you when you realize how seldom they do.” ~~David Foster Wallace
Wallace’s famous sentences are the opposite of those embraced by journalism and/or realism because the world he perceives is the opposite of the one assumed by those modes of writing. His sentences, in other words, are the opposite of transparent and easily comprehensible. #DavidFosterWallace #Writing
A lost audio interview ... In February 1996, David Foster Wallace came to Boston. He was the not-quite recognized writer of the massive book, Infinite Jest
David Foster Wallace, author of Infinite Jest “He was a huge talent… also as sweet a person as I’ve ever known and as tormented a person as I’ve ever known.” - Jonathan Franzen, friend of Wallace, author of The Corrections “He can do sad, funny, silly, heartbreaking and absurd with equal ease; he can even do them all at once.” - Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
David Foster Wallace looks a little like his dog here...his sadness on his journey...I hope he came to know PEACE

BOOKS WORTH READING: A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess | "A brilliant novel… a savage satire on the distortions of the single and collective minds.” - New York Times...READ MORE AT WORDSNQUOTES.COM.
Georgia says: "A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess (1962) but the 1972 cover designed by David Pelham, which has become truly iconic. This is a unique novel that, thanks to Stanley Kubrick's 1971 film, has become a fundamental cultural touchstone, and this cover evokes that aesthetic so is instantly recognisable and taps into the squeamish eye motif of the narrative."
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess original illustrated book cover 1985 edition designed by David Pelham. Part of penguins fiction non-grid series.
'A Clockwork Orange' (novel) by Anthony Burgess. Designed by David Pelham. Image courtesy www.bookcoverarchive.com.
A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess, 1962. On the other hand, it is this 1972 iteration of Burgess’s classic novel, designed by David Pelham, that has truly become iconic. The dust jacket of the first edition, at least in our minds, leaves something to be desired.
