Verb Captain Action

I get my thing in action! To be, to sing, to feel, to live... Verb! That's what's happening.

This meme contracted from relsqui. This meme reminds me of Nathaniel Branden's "stems" and sentence completions. It's an interesting psychological/philosophical exercise.

I see...
...a little silhouette-o of a man, Scaramouche, Scaramouche...
I have...
...not yet begun to fight.
I wish...
...we were all better at identifying and understanding our values.
I hate...
....the collectivist impulse.
I miss....
...my family.
I fear...
...the limits of my courage will someday prove inadequate for some necessary task.
I feel...
...the sense of possibilities.
...the wrench of hard realities.
I hear...
...music in my imagination, often when I'm not hearing it with my ears.
I smell...
...Pop Secret Kettle Corn -- it's on my fingers.
I crave...
...honesty and integrity.
I search...
...for values, both material and spiritual.
I wonder...
...at quite a lot -- it's a good attitude to cultivate.
I regret...
...very few things, because regret is rarely productive.
I love...
...where my values compel me to do so.
I long...
...for a companion who matches me.
I am...
...that I am. I am an end in myself.
I care...
...about the world; I just don't agree with many people's prognoses for it nor their prescriptions for improving it.
I always...
...think there's a band. -- "Professor" Harold Hill
I am not...
...a number -- I am a free man!
I believe...
...that freedom is the teleological destiny of mankind.
I have faith...
...in reason and in human nature.
I cringe...
...when I think of some of the stupid things I've done.
I dance...
...only with someone I trust.
I sing...
...whenever I feel like it, which is frequently, and especially when in the company of someone who also likes it.
I cry...
...rarely, and almost never in front of others.
I learn...
...whenever I can and try not to miss any opportunity to do so.
I do not always...
...have the courage of my convictions.
I succeed...
...through strength of will and persistence.
I fail...
...to understand how people can believe some of the things they do.
I fight...
...sometimes where discretion would be the better part of valor.
I write...
...in this journal far more often than I should.
I give...
...where I am inspired.
I win...
...when I promote the success of those around me.
I never...
...want to die.
I confuse...
...many people whom I would rather have love me.
I listen...
...when I remember to do so, but sometimes I don't try enough.
I hurt...
...when I suffer the loss of those people and things which I value.

My inner editor drove me to LBL (Line-By-Line) this. I hope you don't mind the utter disregard for brevity. (You inspire me to be more pedantic than I am anyway, and I'm not sure that's a good thing. :P)

see: Hehehe . . .
miss: Family is where you find it. You know the feeling of talking to someone a few times and being just at the point where you know enough about them to want to find out what you don't know? I find it a rare pleasure.
smell: Mm. I'm hungry.
search: I never thought about it that way before, but really, aren't we all? No one knows anything important, when you come right down to it (where "important" means things that pertain to the true nature of the universe), which means there's really a missing piece in all of our minds.
regret: If you'll pardon my language, hear fucking hear. (If you won't, then just hear, hear.)
love: What compels you to love?
am: Perfectly summed up.
care: See "regret."
am not: Oh, my god! A rare delight indeed to find someone by chance who speaks Prisoner.
believe: Y'know, that's two words you've made me look up in as many days, except I think I forgot to look up the other one.
cringe: I thought you said you don't regret (much).
cry: The Count, indeed.
write: Frequency or quantity? Either way, a blatant falsehood.
listen: You're more honest than I.
