Once upon a time, there was an island where all 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 helped me?" "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."
