Quotation about freedom from David Foster Wallace

At our 4th of July class, Angie shared a quotation about freedom from the author David Foster Wallace. To allow students who enjoyed the quotation to review it again and folks who were not able to attend to read it, we are posting it here:

“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, Kenyon College commencement speech

For anyone interested in the full speech, which focuses on the benefits of a liberal-arts education but is very applicable to yoga, the audio is available on YouTube.
