Things We Said Today

If I go away
What would still remain of me?
The ghost within your eyes?
The whisper in your sighs?
You see...Believe
And I'm always there.”

- Jon Oliva
(b. 22 July 1960)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   I can't even remember the things I said today.....

BONUS #1 - - Things We Said Today - The Beatles

BONUS #2 - - Things We Said Today - The Beatles, Live at Indiana State Fair, September 3, 1964


"Things We Said Today" is a song by The Beatles written by Paul McCartney[1] and credited to Lennon/McCartney. It was composed for the film A Hard Day's Night and appears on the soundtrack album. It was also released as the B-side of the "A Hard Day's Night" single in the UK.

McCartney wrote the song in May 1964 while cruising the Caribbean aboard a yacht called Happy Days with his then-girlfriend Jane Asher.[2] Music critic Ian MacDonald said, "The sombre lyric—provoked by the frustrating interruptions of a relationship between two career people—matches the lowering gloom of the music."[1]

The song is one of three main compositions (along with "And I Love Her" and "Can't Buy Me Love") that Paul McCartney wrote for The Beatles' film. Recorded in advance of film production for lip-synching reasons, "Things We Said Today" has a reverse nostalgia premise. McCartney said, "I wrote this on acoustic. It was a slightly nostalgic thing already, a future nostalgia. We’ll remember the things we said today, sometime in the future, so the song projects itself into the future."[3]

McCartney was particularly satisfied with his chord change, F major to B flat major—instead of the more obvious F minor—which first occurs beneath "…wishing you weren't so far away" in the song.[4] John Lennon accentuates McCartney's strident acoustic guitar strumming by triple hitting a low A note on a piano. The tempo of the song moves from ballad to rock and back with a minor to major key change during its middle eight section.

Do You Exaggerate? Learn the Incredibly Positive Power of Exaggeration

By Rob White

"Mr. White, what about luck? How much does luck play into someone being successful."

One of the students at the John D. O'Bryant Institute at Northeastern University posed this question during my talk today.

It's a great question. The answer is very simple, I explained: if someone denies himself or herself the right to enjoy good luck, that person will not enjoy good luck.
Whenever you feel like you're having a streak of bad luck or whenever you feel like you don't have good luck, you're denying yourself the right to live happily and successfully.

When you feel that you're undeserving, you deny hundreds of "lucky coincidences." Why would anyone feel undeserving? Well, remember the 60,000 NO's that I so often refer to -- the NO's that assaulted you during childrearing?

It's not only your right, but your duty, to expect good luck to follow you wherever you go. How do you do this? Dare to exaggerate! That's right. You heard me. Dare to exaggerate; learn to stretch your mind to accept a better life for yourself. Dare to exaggerate upwardly.

Sure, the universe does throw us curve balls and bad things do happen to good people. But unlucky people are often unlucky because they point outward instead of inward. They mistakenly point to forces outside them, forces beyond their control, as the reason for their situation. In fact, if they were to point inward, they'd see that they've neglected their right to exaggerate upwardly. They fail to see themselves achieving much more than they did the day before. They fail to envision their future filled with incredibly enriching experiences.

When I speak of exaggerating, I do not mean lying, manipulating others, or trying to impress someone with tall tales and wild yarns. I'm talking about exaggerating to yourself about your talents and potential, and then going out into the world and acting as though it is so until it feels real for you. The exaggeration then ceases to be an exaggeration -- it becomes reality.

When you exaggerate in a positive manner:
1. you think in amplified terms...
2. you force the mind to expand its visions...
3. you replace any woeful reactions with a gargantuan WOW (Wonderful Obsession with Winning) ...
4. you stop running on two cylinders and crank it up to all eight.
5. you activate the Power of Self-Reliance.
In short, positive exaggeration becomes the driver for profound transformation, the kind you need to go from woe to WOW.
So who comes to mind when I think of positive exaggerators?
* Great leaders, like John F. Kennedy, who said we'd walk on the moon within a decade and Martin Luther King Jr., who had a dream that everyone is created equal.
* Entertainment giants, like Elvis Presley, who dared to move his hips while singing and ushered in a new era of music and Oprah Winfrey who exaggerated herself out of an extremely harsh environment to the very tip top of the entertainment chart.
* Unsung heroes, like Dr. Elsa Guzman (my dentist), who came from a small island nation where she was born into the humblest of conditions yet dared to exaggerate and say, "I'm going to become a dentist and move to America."
* Everyday people, like yours truly, who dared to quit teaching after 17 years by exaggerating to himself and imagining growing a multi-million real estate development business, and JK Allen, a friend of mine who was raised in very difficult family circumstances and is now a successful businessman with a supportive and loving wife and four enthusiastic and happy children (his wonderful family is the pride of his life).

I hope to add another name to the list: YOU! You have the key to unlock the door to any self-imposed prison. Dare to break out and begin your life anew. Dare to exaggerate about who you are, what you're capable of achieving, and how you're going to create your own future, rather than hoping and wishing and just taking whatever comes your way.

Please get out there and prove it is true. All sorts of things will occur to help you -- there's that so-called luck! Please tell us how the Power of Positive Exaggeration works for you?

Thank you and blessings.

From - 06/23/13:


This is the word women use to end an argument when they feel they are right and you need to shut up. Never use "fine" to describe how a woman looks - this will cause you to have one of those arguments. 


This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so it's an even trade. 


This means "something," and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards. "Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with "Fine." 

GO AHEAD (With Raised Eyebrows) 

This is a dare. One that will result in a woman getting upset over "Nothing" and will end with the word "Fine." 

GO AHEAD (Normal Eyebrows) 

This means "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care" You will get a "Raised Eyebrow Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by "Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes" when she cools off. 


This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot at that moment, and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing." 


Again, not a word, but a non-verbal statement. "Soft Sighs" mean that she is content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe, and she will stay content. 


This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before paying you back for whatever it is that you have done. "That's Okay" is often used with the word "Fine" and in conjunction with a "Raised Eyebrow." 


At some point in the near future, you are going to be in some mighty big trouble. 


This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman is giving you the chance to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing whatever it is that you have done. You have a fair chance with the truth, so be careful and you shouldn't get a "That's Okay." 


A woman is thanking you. Do not faint. Just say you're welcome. 


This is much different from "Thanks." A woman will say, "Thanks A Lot" when she is really ticked off at you. It signifies that you have offended her in some callous way, and will be followed by the "Loud Sigh." Be careful not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh," as she will only tell you "Nothing."

Things We Said Today

Written by Paul McCartney (b. 18 June 1942) and credited to Lennon/McCartney.

Recorded by The Beatles, 1964

You say you will love me
If I have to go
You'll be thinking of me
somehow I will know
Someday when I'm lonely
wishing you weren't so far away
Then I will remember
Things we said today

You said you'll be mine, girl
'til the end of time
These days such a kind girl
seems so hard to find
Someday when we're dreaming
deep in love, not a lot to say
Then we will remember
Things we said today

Me I'm just the lucky kind
Love to hear you say that love is love
And though we may be blind
Love is here to stay and that's enough

To make you mine, girl
be the only one
loves me all the time, girl
we'll go on and on

Some day when we're dreaming
deep in love not a lot to say
Then we will remember
Things we said today

Me I'm just the lucky kind
Love to hear you say that love is love
And though we may be blind
Love is here to stay and that's enough

To make you mine, girl
believe only one
loves me all the time, girl
we'll go on and on

Some day when we're dreaming
deep in love not a lot to say
Then we will remember
Things we said today
