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 all of the feelings that
the island was
going
to sink to the bottom of the ocean. So all the
feelings prepared
their
boats to leave. Love was the only one that stayed.
She wanted to
preserve
the island until the last possible moment. When
the island was
almost
totally under, Love decided it was time to leave.
She began looking
for
someone to ask for help.

Just then Richness was passing by in a grand boat.

Love asked, "Richness, Can I come with you on
your boat?"
Richness
answered, "I'm sorry, but there is a lot of silver
and gold on my boat
and
there would be no room for you."

Then Love decided to ask Vanity for help who was
passing in a
beautiful
vessel. Love cried out, "Vanity, help me please."I
can't help you",
Vanity
said, "You are all wet and will damage my beautiful
boat."

Next, Love saw Sadness passing by. Love said,
"Sadness, please let
me go
with you." Sadness answered, "Love, I'm sorry, but, I
just need to be
alone
now."

Then, Love saw Happiness. Love cried out, "
Happiness, please take me
with
you." But Happiness was so overjoyed that he didn't
hear Love
calling to
him.

Love began to cry. Then, she heard a voice say, "Come
Love, I will take
you with me." It was an elder. Love felt so blessed
and overjoyed that
she
forgot to ask the elder his name. When they arrived
on land the elder
went
on his way.

Love realized how much she owed the elder.

Love then found Knowledge and asked, "Who was it
that helped me?" "It
was
Time", Knowledge answered. "But why did Time
help me when no one
else
would?", Love asked. Knowledge smiled and with deep
wisdom and
sincerity,
answered, "Because only Time is capable of
understanding how great
Love
is."

The statistics on Love:

1. At least 5 people in this world, love you so much
they would die for
you.

2. At least 15 people in this world love you, in some
way.

3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you, is
because they want to
be
just like you.

4. A smile from you, can bring happiness to anyone,
even if they don't
like
you.

5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they
go to sleep.

6. You mean the world to someone.

7. Without you, someone may not be living.

8. You are special and unique, in your own way.

9. Someone that you don't even know exists, loves you.

10. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something
good comes from
it.

11. When you think the world has turned it's back on
you, take a look,
you
most likely turned your back on the world.

12. When you think you have no chance at getting what
you want, you
probably won't get it, but if you believe in yourself,
you probably
sooner
or later will get it.

13. Always remember complements you received, forget
about the rude
remarks.

14. Always tell someone how you feel about them, you
will feel much
better
when they know.

15. If you have a great friend, take the time to let
them know that
they
are great.
