“This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never all dried at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn, and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.”

—John Muir, John of the Mountains: The Unpublished Journals of John Muir.

Poem from Movie

I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair.

I hate the way you drive my car,

I hate it when you stare.

I hate your big dumb combat boots and the way you read my mind.

I hate you so much it makes me sick, it even makes my rhyme.

I hate the way you’re always right, I hate it when you lie,

I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry.

I hate it when you’re not around and the fact that you didn’t call

but mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you, not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.

From The Movie 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

Music: Non, Je ne regrette rien

This French song is by Édith Piaf (19 December 1915 – 10 October 1963). She was a French cabaret singer, songwriter, and actress who became widely regarded as France’s national chanteuse, as well as being one of France’s greatest international stars.

Her music was often autobiographical with her singing reflecting her life, and her specialty being chanson and torch ballads, particularly of love, loss, and sorrow.

Since her death in 1963 and with the aid of several biographies and films including 2007’s Academy Award winning La Vie en rose, Piaf has acquired a legacy as one of the greatest performers of the 20th century, and her voice and music continue to be celebrated globally.

This song was released in 1960.

As I love Music, I love music of all language, of all kind and all places. I loved it too.
