Graduated from the Mentoring Program on October 23, 2015!
I'm currently in college studying accounting and finance. I've been with WikiAnswers since 2009, so this marks my 8th year! I'm not as active as I once was, but hope to come back soon and help answer more questions.
"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 the feelings that the island would sink, so all constructed boats and left. All, except for Love. Love was the only one who stayed because Love wanted to hold out until the very last moment.
When the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help. Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat so Love asked, '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 for you here.'
Love decided to ask Vanity, who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel.
'Vanity, please help me!' Love called.
'I can't help you Love. You are all wet and you might damage my boat,' Vanity answered.
Sadness was close by so Love said, 'Sadness, let me go with you.'
'Oh…Love, I am too sad and I need to be by myself right now,' Sadness cried.
Happiness passed by Love too, but she was so happy that she didn't even hear when Love called to her.
Suddenly, there was a voice, "Come Love, I will take you." It was an elder. So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where they were going. When they arrived at dry land, the elder disappeared. Realizing how much was owed to the elder, Love asked Knowledge, another elder, 'Who was it who helped me?"
'It was Time,' Knowledge answered.
'Why did Time help me?' Love asked.
Knowledge smiled and said, 'Because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is.'"
