Flowchart: David Foster Wallace On How To Live A Compassionate Life
In “This Is Water,” David Foster Wallace offers thoughts on living a compassionate life. Jessica Hagy beautifully illustrates them here.
If you’re automatically sure that you know what reality is, and you are operating on your default setting, then you, like me, probably won’t consider possibilities that aren’t annoying and miserable … But if you really learn how to pay attention, then you will know there are other options. It will actually be within your power to experience a crowded, hot, slow, consumer-hell type situation as not only meaningful, but sacred, on fire with the same force that made the stars: love, fellowship, the mystical oneness of all things deep down.
