Once upon a long time on Earth, was an island on which all spiritual values lived. But one day they noticed how the island began to go under the water.
All the values sat on their ships and swam away.
On the island, there was only Love left.
She waited until the last, but when there was nothing to wait for, she also decided to sail away from the island.
Then she called Wealth and asked him to get on his ship, but Wealth answered: “There are many jewels and gold on my ship, there is no place for you here.”
When the Sorrow ship sailed past, she asked her as well, but Sorrow answered:
“I’m sorry, Love, I’m so sad that I need to always be alone.”
Then Love saw the ship of Pride and asked for help from her, but Pride said that Love would break the harmony on her ship.
Joy floated nearby, but she was so busy with fun that she did not even hear about the calls of Love.
Then Love completely despaired.
But suddenly she heard a voice somewhere behind:
“Let’s go, Love, I’ll take you with me.”
Love turned and saw an old man. He drove her to the land, and when the old man swam away, Love remembered, that she forgot to ask his name.
Then she turned to Knowledge:
“Tell me, Knowledge, who saved me? Who was this elder?”
Knowledge looked at Love with surprise: “It was the Time.”
“Time?” – Love repeated. “But why did he save me?”
Knowledge once again looked at Love, then into the distance, where the old man had left: ” Because only Time knows how important Love is in life…”
