Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelling lived : Happiness,
Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others, including love. Once day it was announced
to the feelings that the island would sink, so all constructed boats and
left.except for love.
Love was the only one who stayed. Love wanted to hold out until the last possible
When the island had almost sank, love decided to ask for help
Richness was passing by love in a grand boat. Love said “Richness, can you take me
Richness answered, “No , I can’t .There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat.
There ‘s 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 demage my boat” Vanity answer .
Sadness was close by so Love asked, “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
Suddenly, there was a voice , “ Come, Love, I will take you.” It was an
elder. So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where they were
going . When they arrived at dry land , the elder went her own way . Realizing how
much was owed the elder, Love asked Knowledge, another elder, “Who helped me ? ”
“It was Time.” Knowledge answered.
“Time?” asked Love. “but why did Time help me?”
Knowledg smile with deep wisdom and answered , “Because only Time is capable of
understanding how valuable Love is. ”
