I often regret having come into this pretty world; not that I hate the world. No ... I love the world, I love high society & even the demi-monde, since I'm a sort of demi-mondain myself.
But what have I come to do on this Earth, which is so earthly and so earthy?
Do I have duties to perform here? Have I come here to carry out a mission a commission?
Have I been sent here to amuse myself? to enjoy myself a little? ... to forget the miseries of a beyond which I no longer remember? Am I not unwelcome here?
What should I say to all these questions?
Thinking, almost from the moment of my arrival, that I was doing some good down here, I began to play a few musical airs which I myself had invented ...
All my troubles stemmed from there.
from: Erik Satie: Recoins de ma vie
Erik Satie, 1866 - 1925
