“We have a saying in Tibet: If a problem can be solved there is no use worrying about it. If it can't be solved, worrying will do no good.”
Heinrich Harrer, Seven Years in Tibet

“All our dreams begin in youth.”
Heinrich Harrer, Seven Years in Tibet

“Wherever I live, I shall feel homesick for Tibet. I often think I can still hear the cries of wild geese and cranes and the beating of their wings as they fly over Lhasa in the clear, cold moonlight. My heartfelt wish is that my story may create some understanding for a people whose will to live in peace and freedom has won so little sympathy from an indifferent world.”
Heinrich Harrer, Seven Years in Tibet
