Favorite Lines from James Thurber's The 13 Clocks (so far)

"He wore an indescribable hat, his eyes were wide and astonished, as if everything were happening for the first time, and he had a dark, describable beard."

"'If you have nothing better than your songs,' he said, 'You are somewhat less than much, and only a little more than anything.'"

"'Half the places I have been to, never were. I make things up. Half the things I say are there cannot be found. When I was young I told a tale of buried gold, and men from leagues around dug in the woods. I dug myself.'
'But why?'
'I thought the tale of treasure might be true.'
'You said you made it up.'
'I know I did, but then I didn't know I had. I forget things, too.'"
