A Story of LOVE and TIME
Once upon a time, there was an island where all
the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others
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
It was an elder. Love felt so blessed and overjoyed
that he even forgot to ask the elder her name. When they arrived on 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."
