Only Time Knows the Value of Love
"All human emotions gathered on an island to celebrate. After a while, they were all asked to evacuate because the island is drowning. All emotions fled, except for Love, who did not have the heart to let the island drown all alone. When the island was almost completely submerged, Love called on Pride to help him, but Pide refused to let him on his boat. So did Wealth, Sadness, and Pleasure. At that moment an honorable old man came and rescued love. Love wanted to know the identity of the one who saved him, so he asked Wisdom who told him: “It is Time,” because only time knows the value of love and the importance of its existence."
