There was once a King who wanted to go hunting. He consulted his Weather Minister who said, "The weather is clear. It won't rain. Good hunting to you!"

The King set out with his hunting party. On the way they met a farmer riding on a donkey. "Your Majesty, don't go hunting today. It's going to rain.", said the farmer.  The king laughed and rode on.  Surely the Court Minister knew better than a simple farmer!
But just as the King reached the forest, it began to rain. Oh, how it poured!  They were all soaked to the skin.

When the King got home, he fired the Court Minister.  Then he sent for the farmer.  "From now on," said the King, "You will be my Weather Minister.  Now tell me how did you know it would rain?" 
"I didn't," said the farmer, "It's my donkey who knows when it's going to rain. He puts his ears forward when it's going to rain. He puts his ears back when it's going to be dry.  So you see, I can't take the job."  The King sent the farmer away and sent for the donkey. And the donkey became the Royal Chief Weather Minister.  Even a donkey has its day!

You see folks, "That's when the King made a big mistake."
You may ask, "What seems to be the mistake here?"
"Well, ever since that time, every donkey wants to work for the King."

Message Love Island

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. 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."

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."
