Watch: Tim Minchin’s hilarious and thought provoking “9 rules to live by” still rings true

Wisdom sometimes comes from unexpected places, which probably proves that we should never judge a book by its cover. When it was first released in 2013, the below video went viral and caused a tremendous sensation. We’re posting it again, five years later, because his words continue to impress – and ring true.

Amongst many other notable achievements, Minchin composed and wrote the lyrics for the Olivier Award winning and Tony Award winning Matilda the Musical. The show is based on Roald Dahl’s children’s book, Matilda, and was also nominated for a Grammy Award.

The full speech can be read on Minchin’s blog.
