Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge and Love


“You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness.” 
― Jonathan Safran Foer

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 paradise until the last possible
moment.


“Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.” 
― Langston Hughes
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 anywhere.”
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.”


Truth is within each moment. 

“The more I see, the less I know for sure.”

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.”


“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.” 
― William W. Purkey

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” 
― AnonymousHoly Bible

“This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy.” 
― Susan Polis Schutz
