A pretty good list of joy-triggers: clear laughter, kind words and tasty dishes. What else? Tell me three more, or one, or two.
And what a comment on Zorba, that his return meant the return of all the things that rejoice the heart. There can hardly be a greater compliment.
‘I was waiting for Zorba to return, and with him all the things which rejoice the heart of man: clear laughter, the kind word, tasty dishes.’
