A Message to Young People from Andrei Tarkovsky

“What would you like to tell young people?”

Andrei Tarkovsky:

“Learn to love solitude, to be more alone with yourselves.  The problem with young people…is their carrying out noisy and aggressive actions not to feel lonely.  And this is a sad thing.

“The individual must learn to be on his own as a child, for this doesn’t mean to be alone: it means not to get bored with oneself, which is a very dangerous symptom… almost a disease.
