Andrei Tarkovsky
Only one journey is possible

Only one journey is possible: the journey within.
We don’t learn a whole lot from dashing about on the surface of the Earth.
Neither do I believe that one travels so as to eventually return.
Man can never reach back to the point of origin, because he has changed in the process.
And of course we cannot escape from ourselves; what we are we carry with us.
We carry with us the dwelling place of our soul, like the turtle carries its shell.
A journey through all the countries of the world would be a mere symbolic journey.
Whatever place one arrives at, it is still one’s own soul that one is searching for.
