A Love Story
Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness,
Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others including Love. One day it was
announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all repaired their
boats and left. Love was the only one who stayed. Love wanted to persevere
until the last possible moment. When the island was almost sinking, Love
decided to ask for help.
Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said, "Richness, can you
take me with you?" Richness answered, "No, I can't.. There is a lot of gold and
silver in my boat. There is no place here for you."
Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel,
"Vanity, please help me!" "I can't help you Love. You are all wet and might
damage my boat," Vanity answered.
Sadness was close by so Love asked for help, "Sadness, let me go with you."
"Oh...Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!"
Happiness passed by Love too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear
when Love called her!
Suddenly, there was a voice, "Come Love, I will take you." It was an elder.
Love felt so blessed and overjoyed that he even forgot to ask the elder her
name. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went her own way. Love
realizing how much he owed the elder asked Knowledge, another elder, "Who
"It was Time," Knowledge answered.
"Time?" asked Love. "But why did Time help me?"
Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, "Because only Time is capable
of understanding how great Love is."
