A wonderful comment by Zorba regarding the mental development of his boss.  Not, perhaps, a line to try on your own boss, however true it may seem.

See also his equally crushing comment on his boss’s behaviour towards the workers.


“I hope you don’t mind my saying so, boss, but I don’t think your brain is quite formed yet.  How old are you?”


“Then it never will be.”
