Erik Satie
Quotations



"M. Ravel refuses the Legion of Honor, but all his music accepts it."
 
"I came very young into the world in a very old time."
 
"I was tired of being reproached with an ignorance of which I thought I must be guilty, since competent people pointed it out in my works."
 
"I am suffering too much. It seems to me that I am cursed. I loathe this beggar's life. I am looking for and want to find a position, an employment, however manial. I shit on Art: it has "cut me up" too often. It's a mug's game - if I may say so... For the last months and more I haven't been able to write a note."
 
"My dream is to be played everywhere, not only at the Opera."
 
"Before I compose a piece, I walk around it several times, accompanied by myself."
