Shah Rukh Khan’s oratory skills need no introduction. The actor has made an impression every time that he delivers a speech.
His ability to laugh at his own mistakes, draw from his life and relate it to the lives of the audience and citing examples of his films, makes him an extremely endearing speaker.
His speech at the Edinburgh University was as inspiring as it was interesting.
Here are five quotes that you must pin to your desk and refer to, every time you are low on motivation:
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.”
