Once upon a time, there was an island where all 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 repaired their boats and left. Love was the only one who stayed.

Love wanted to persevere until the last possible moment. When the

island was almost sinking, 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 for help, "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. Love felt so blessed and overjoyed that he even forgot to ask the

elder her name. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went her own way.

Love realizing how much he owed the elder 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 great Love is."

A good story!

Love is the greatest feeling; the importance of which is generally understood only by time when we lose it.

Love is a feeling so pure and so pious, incomparable with any.

Man generally becomes blind with vanity to see love, when he is encircled by happiness, richness, etc.

But love is above all these. Since all other feelings are perishable except love.

Benjamin Franklin once said, "If you would be loved, love and be lovable." Love is something we are all in at least one time or another in our life. There are many different meanings for the word love and many people interpret it differently. Love as defined by one dictionary is a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person.

When you love someone you care; not only care about them as a person, but also about their well being. When they are hurt, you feel hurt and when they are in pain you feel pain also. Their physical and emotional problems are not only theirs, but they are yours as well. To be in love means to care about that person so deeply that your life would not be complete without them. The fact that you cherish one person so much is a blessing to some, as well as a gift.

Love has many forms. Love towards parents, love towards family, love towards friends, love towards nation, love towards one-own self, etc.

But the purest form is love towards GOD, the Almighty. Love towards Him takes the form of devotion.

That devotion- love towards GOD is a powerful source in itself.

And when one sees GOD in all of His (GOD’s) creations, there would be no hatred anywhere; but love everywhere
