Love and Time

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 constructed boats and left except Love.
Love was the only one who 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 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 ship. “Vanity, please help me! “
“I can’t help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my ship, ” vanity answered.
Sadness was close by so Love asked, “Sadness, let me go with you. “
“Oh… love, I’m so sad that I need to be by myself! “
Happiness passed by love, too, but she was so happy that she didn’t even hear when Love called her.
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 he 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? “
Knowledge slimed with deep wisdom and answered, “Because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is. “

曾经有一个小岛,上面住着幸福、悲伤、知识和其它的一些情感,当然也包括爱。一天,所有的情感被通知这个小岛快要沉落了,所有的情感都在建造小船,除了爱。
爱是唯一留下来的,他想要坚持到岛沉落的那一刻。
在岛快要沉落的时候,爱决定要向其他情感寻求帮助了。
坐在一搜巨大的船上的财富刚刚路过爱,爱问他,可否带他一起?
财富回答:“对不起,爱,不行,因为船上已经充满了金银,实在是没有地方留给你了。”
爱去问在坐在一艘漂亮船上的虚荣,“请帮助我!”
虚荣回答说:“不行,爱,你全身都是湿的,会弄脏我的船的。”
这时悲伤路过爱(这时悲伤的船员靠近了),爱问他可否带他一起。
悲伤回答说:“不行,爱,我太悲伤了,所以我需要一个人(我想一个人待着)。”
幸福也路过爱,但是由于他太开心了以至于没有听到爱叫他。
突然,有一个长者的声音传过来,“上我这里来,爱,我带你走。”由于太开心和幸运了,爱都忘记问他们要去哪里了。在到达一个干燥的路地后,那个长者离开了爱。爱意识到自己亏欠那个长者好多,就去问知识,刚刚那个长者是谁?
“是时间。”知识回答说。
“时间?”爱问道:“但是它为什么要帮助我呢?”
知识带着深深(睿智)的笑意回答说:“因为只有时间才明白爱的重要性(价值)。”
