I hate women because they always know where things are.

- More quotations on: Men And Women
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
I used to wake up at 4 A.M. and start sneezing, sometimes for five hours. I tried to find out what sort of allergy I had but finally came to the conclusion that it must be an allergy to consciousness.
James Thurber
It had only one fault. It was kind of lousy.

THURBER Well, once I did a drawing for The New Yorker of a naked woman on all fours up on top of a bookcase—a big bookcase—she's up there near the ceiling, and in the room are her husband and two other women. The husband is saying to one of the women, obviously a guest: "This is the present Mrs. Harris. That's my first wife up there." Well, when I did the cartoon originally I meant the naked woman to be at the top of a flight of stairs, but I lost the sense of perspective and instead of getting in the stairs when I drew my line down, there she was stuck up there, naked, on a bookcase. Incidentally, that cartoon really threw

James Thurber
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. James Grover Thurber December 8 November 2 ) was a U.S. humorist and cartoonist . Thurber was best known for his contributions (both cartoons and short stories) to The New Yorker Thurber was born in Columbus Ohio . He joined the staff of The New Yorker in 1927 and continued to contribute to the magazine through the 1950s. Due to a childhood injury, Thurber suffered from very poor eyesight and his eyes grew weaker as he grew older. He drew his cartoons on very large sheets of paper using a thick black crayon, giving them an eerie, wobbly feel that seems to mirror Thurber's idiosyncratic view on life. Many of his short stories are humorous fictional memoirs from his life, but he also wrote darker material. "The Dog Who Bit People" and "The Night the Bed Fell on My Father" are among his best best short stories; they can be found in My Life and Hard Times . Also notable, and often anthologized, are "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty ", "The Greatest Man in the World" and "If Grant Had Been Drinking at Appomattox", which can be found in

Item Description The shy Midwesterner James Thurber became a famed cartoonist and humor writer almost, it seems, by accident: Thurber in person was often depressed and self-conscious, darker strains that emerge fitfully in his sly, absurdist work. Garrison Keillor, a sunnier brand of Midwestern humorist, has assembled four longer works with many of Thurber's drawings and short pieces for the Library of America edition of Thurber's selected works. Many of these cartoons and writings are now classics, and Thurber's edgy, modernist humornot to mention his usually bewildered protagonistshas influenced many of the best cartoonists today.

B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback James (Grover) Thurber (1894-1961) American writer and cartoonist, who dealt with the frustrations of modern world. Thurber's best-known characters are Walter Mitty, his snarling wife, and silently observing animals. His stories have influenced later writers, such as Kurt Vonnegut and Joseph Heller . Thurber is generally acknowledged as the greatest American humorist since Mark Twain (1835-1910). '"What was the matter with that one policeman? mother asked, after they had gone. "Grandfather shot him," I said. "What for?" she demanded. I told her he was a deserter. "Of all things!" said mother. "He was such a nice-looking young man."' (from 'The Night the Ghost Got In', in My Life and Hard Times James Thurber was born in Columbus, Ohio. His father, Charles L. Thurber, was a clerk and minor politician, who went through many periods of unemployment. Mary Thurber, his mother, was a strong-minded woman and a practical joker. Once she surprised her guests by explaining that she was kept in the attic because of her love for the postman. On another occasion she pretended to be a cripple and attended a faith healer's revival, jumping up suddenly and proclaiming herself cured. Thurber described her as "a born comedienne" and "one of the finest comic talents I think I've ever known." Thurber's father, who had dreams of being an actor or lawyer, was said to have been the basis of the typical small, slight man of Thurber's stories. Later Thurber portrayed his family in MY LIFE AND HARD TIMES (1933). "I suppose that the high-water mark of my youth in Columbus, Ohio, was the night the bed fell on my father," Thurber wrote in the book.

His Life and Times

By Harrison Kinney Chapter One: Those Clocks of Columbus In the early years of the nineteenth century, Columbus won out, as state capital, by only one vote over Lancaster, and ever since then has had the hallucination that it is being followed, a curious municipal state of mind which affects, in some way or other, all those who live there. Columbus is a town in which almost anything is likely to happen and in which almost everything has. -from "More Alarms at Night" In the period of Mccarthyism, America's political nightmare of the 1950s, Donald Ogden Stewart, actor, playwright, screenplay writer, and satirist, found himself being chased through the ideological badlands by congressional posses in hot pursuit of un-American Americans. His career and livelihood in danger of being lynched at home, he moved abroad. He was from Columbus, Ohio, and writes: "When I first came to live in London, I was amazed at the number of Englishmen who said, `Oh, yes, Columbus, of course. I know it very well, from Thurber's books, you know.'" Stewart's observation is seconded by a Columbus Citizen-Journal radio-television editor who once interviewed the English actor Charles Laughton over long distance telephone: "So you're plugged in from Columbus, eh?" Laughton remarked. "The home of James Thurber. He is a good friend of mine and the greatest living master of the English language."

Interview with a Lemming
Interview with a Lemming by James Thurber The weary scientist, tramping through the mountains of northern Europe in the winter weather dropped his knapsack and prepared to sit on a rock. "Careful, brother," said a voice. "Sorry," murmured the scientist, noting with some surprise that a lemming which he had been about to sit on had addressed him. "It is a source of considerable astonishment to me," said the scientist, sitting down beside the lemming, "that you are capable of speech." "You human beings are always astonished," said the lemming, "when any other animal can do anything you can. Yet there are many things animals can do that you cannot, such as stridulate, or chirr, to name just one. To stridulate, or chirr, one of the minor achievements of the cricket, your species is dependent on the intestines of sheep and the hair of the horse." "We are a dependent animal," admitted the scientist. "You are an amazing animal," said the lemming. "We have always considered you rather amazing, too," said the scientist. "You are perhaps the most mysterious of creatures." "If we are going to indulge in adjectives beginning with 'm,' said the lemming sharply, "let me apply a few to your speciesmurderous, maladjusted, maleficent and muffle-headed."
