island of feelings

 i read it in sulastri's blog..i called her SUE. ex-classmate..and i decided to share it with all of you...since it such a loveable story...

it is a story about happiness,sadness,knowledge and etc..

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the 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 realized how much he owed
the elder and asked Knowledge : 
"Who helped me?" "It was Time," Knowledge answered. 
"Time?" asked Love. "But why did Time help me?" 
Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and

"Because only Time is capable of 
understanding how great Love is."
