David Foster Wallace on Quiet

I am blown away by DFW’s insight. Every time I watch this video I feel that my thoughts on our culture have been spilled out before me. It is a comforting thing to find a friend of your ideas, even if you may never meet that person. Fleeing from quiet is a symptom of a sickness. One important question to think about is this: why would it be dreadful to be alone and quiet?
