Love and Time...Inspirational love stories


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 for 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 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, "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. 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?"
Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, "Because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is."

  4. hi...!hmmmm..for 8s not just time. 8 also includes the mind... and the heart. of cors how can u say the value of existence of love without those..; imagine u install focet in ur house without the pipe connecting 8 to the water source. of cors no water will flow from 8. just the same in this equation gvn to us by HIM in realizing the value of love:
    love = time + mind + heart

    for me this is the formula tht God gve to us.

  5. YAP!!! in loving we must put together mind and heart. but it is time that is capable of understanding how valuable Love is. Love bears all things and can do all things... it is only in LOVE that we understand others... if we LOVE nothing is difficult or hard...
