#156 Sensitive to Complexities

I loathe the expression “What makes him tick.” It is the American mind, looking for simple and singular solutions, 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

Simplicities are enormously complex. Consider the sentence "I love you". ~ Richard O. Moore
