Speech by Bill Watterson

The author of Calvin & Hobbes gave a speech to a graduating class many years ago. I think it is worth the read.

An excerpt:
"We're not really taught how to recreate constructively. We need to do more than find diversions; we need to restore and expand ourselves. Our idea of relaxing is all too often to plop down in front of the television set and let its pandering idiocy liquefy our brains. Shutting off the thought process is not rejuvenating; the mind is like a car battery-it recharges by running."
