Once upon a time , there was an island where all the feelings lived : happiness, sadness , knowledge, and all the others , including love .
One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink , so all constructed boats them and left. That is, except for love.
Love was the only one I stayed. Love wanted to hold out until the last possible moment .
When the island had almost sunk , Love decided to ask for help.
Richness was passing by Love in a great boat . Love said, ” Richness , can you take me ? ”
Richness answered , ” No, I can not . Lots of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you. ”
Love decided to ask Vanity who also happened in a beautiful vessel. ” Vanity, please help me ! ”
” I can not help you, Love . ” Are all wet and will damage my boat , responded vanity.
Sadness was close by Love asked , ” Sadness , let me go with you. ”
” Oh, honey , I’m so sad that I need to be alone ” complained of sadness .
Happiness also died for love, 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 , ” said an old man .
So blessed and happy , Love even forgot to ask the old man 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 the love. ” But why did Time help me ? ”
Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered , ” Because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is . “
