I don't even know who David Foster Wallace is
Of course, I had to google him and read his Wikipedia page.
He wrote this:
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.
So, yeah, I totally see the comparison. He loved endnotes, too, but I haven't figured them out in Blogger... I wonder if he used lots of ellipses....
