Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived:
Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others including Love.
However, one day it was announced to the feelings that the island
would sink, so all prepared their boats and left. Love was the only one
Love wanted to stay until it started sinking. When Love was almost
sinking, he decided to ask for help.
Richness was passing by Love in a beautiful boat. Love said,
“Richness, can you take me with you?”
Richness answered, “No, I can’t. There are 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, “Vanity, please
“I can’t help you Love. You are all wet and can probably damage my boat,”
Sadness was close by so Love asked for help, “Sadness, let me go with
“Oh…Love, I am so sad that I prefer to go alone!”
Happiness passed by Love too, but she was so happy that she did not
listen when Love called her!
Suddenly, there was a voice, “Come Love, I will take you.” It was an
elderly. Love became very happy that he even forgot to ask the name
of the elderly.
When they arrived to the other side , Love asked Knowledge who the
elderly was. “It was Time.”
“Time? But why did Time help me?”
“Because only Time is capable of understanding you…… Love.”
