Quotation #26257 from Michael Moncur's (Cynical) Quotations:

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
US author, cartoonist, humorist, & satirist (1894 - 1961)
