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.
