"A Recipe of good tea is very simple: don't regret tea". The table talk was going on, there was plenty
of tea, and guests, exhausted with thirst, were listening attentively to Naum Yakovlevich, who was
praising the tea, the hostess and was relishly telling the Voronezh news. I thought that if one didn't
take the recipe word by word it was not so easy to follow it. Naum Yakovlevich managed to: he regretted
neither kind words nor attention nor strength to help nor energy for a good deed. As if by chance he
created a special comfort infrastructure of human relations around him. And he always was surrounded
by beloved friends and facilitators.
