Be it in the movies in front of his Heroine or her ‘Baabuji’ or in real life, Shahrukh Khan’s exceptional oratory skills have no bounds. The actor made an incredibly endearing speech at the Edinburgh University impressing all alike. He has an exceptional quality to laugh at his own mistakes at the same time while learning deeper lessons. He gave some really witty  lessons in his speech citing examples from his films making it even more interesting.

While everything the King spoke had something to ponder over, here are some really sassy life lessons from SRK’s Speech at Edinburgh University.

1. “Don’t let your fears become boxes that enclose you. Open them out, feel them and turn them into the greatest courage you are capable of.”

2. “Art is more important than the artist – have no attachment to your own art – it’s regressive, move on.”

3. “It’s OK to be confused. Confusion is the route to all the clarity in the world.”

4. “Don’t ever treat your little insanities as if they are aberrations that ought to be hidden from the rest of the world. All the most beautiful people in the world, the most creative, the ones who led revolutions, who discovered and invented things, did so because they embraced their own idiosyncrasies.”

5. “Don’t become a philosopher before you become rich.”

6. “Madness (of the particularly nice/romantic kind) is an absolute prerequisite to a happy and successful life. Don’t ever treat your little insanities as if they are aberrations that ought to be hidden from the rest of the world. Acknowledge them and use them to define your own way of living the only life you have.”

7. “All the most beautiful people in the world, the most creative, the ones who led revolutions, who discovered and invented things, did so because they embraced their own idiosyncrasies.”

8. “No matter how bad it gets, life IS the miracle you are searching for. There is no other one around the corner.”

9. “Honour your life. Honour each gift and each moment by not laying it to waste. There is no real measure of success in this world except the ability to make good of life’s endowments to you.”

10. “Don’t let your fears become boxes that enclose you. Open them out, feel them and turn them into the greatest courage you are capable of. I promise you, nothing will go wrong. But if you live by your fears, everything that can possibly go wrong will go wrong and you wont even have done the Funky Chicken.”

11. “It’s fine not to know what you want to be twenty years from now. Most of those who had it all figured out became bankers anyway.”

12. “Always try to see the other person’s truth because like every movie has a story, every human being has one too and you have no right to imagine that yours is better than anyone else’s.”

13. “Give of yourself to others. And while you’re at it, make sure you realise that you aren’t doing anyone any favours by being kind.”

14. “An act of goodness becomes worthless when you assign a brownie point to yourself for it, no matter how subtly you allow yourself to do so.”
