“I was happy, I knew that . While experiencing happiness, we have difficulty in being conscious of it. Only when the happiness is past and we look back on it do we suddenly realize—sometimes with astonishment—how happy we had been. But on this Cretan coast I was experiencing happiness and knew I was happy.”
from Zorba the Greek by Nikos Kazantzakis
It is on My Road to Zion, “The City of God,” that I know I am happy.
