A nice one from Thurber

I loathe the expression "What makes him tick." It is the American mind,
looking for simple and singular solution, that uses the foolish expression.
A person not only ticks, he also chimes and strikes the hour, falls and
breaks and has to be put together again, and sometimes stops like an
electric clock in a thunderstorm.
-James Thurber
