The Successful Love Story

A woman came out of her house and saw three old men wearing white shabby clothes sitting on a bench outside her home.

The woman felt sympathy for them, so she said ” It seems you all are hungry, please come inside and have something to eat.”

 “Is your husband at home?” they asked. “No”, she said. “He’s out.”

 “Then we cannot come in”, they replied.

 In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened. “Go tell them I am home and invite them in,” he said.

The woman went out and invited the men in. “We do not go into a house together,” they replied. “Why is that?” she wanted to know.

One of the old men explained: “His name is Wealth,” he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, “He is Success, and I am Love.” Then he added, “Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home.”

The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. “How nice!” he said. “Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!”

His wife disagreed. “My dear, why don’t we invite Success?” Their young daughter was listening to the conversation.

She jumped in with her own suggestion: “Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!”

“Let us heed our daughter’s advice,” said the husband to his wife. “Go out and invite Love to be our guest.”

The woman went out and asked the three old men, “Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest.” Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other two also got up and followed him.

Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success: “I only invited Love, why are you coming in?”

The old men replied together: “If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would’ve stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success!”

    really nice but hard to find out the true love!

    Love is God given.The rest is material,alterable and perishable. If you have love ,you enjoy the Divine grace, a nd therefore you are fulfilled in every way.

    what we have to do with wealth and success if we dont have love. ?

    Definition of success and wealth is just a mind set…many rich people never satisfied on their present status while many poor people consider themselve rich (by saying Alhamdolillah from their heart) and consider themselves a successful man if they really have true love with them.

    Quite often we fail to understand the meaning of love and run after wealth.

    I think it seems that you didn’t understand the story to say such things about it. Your reading, I’m sorry to tell you that, is superficial. You don’t understand the deep meanings or the connotations or symbols or allegories. You need to go for a training course in appreciating fiction. Sorry>

  25. Abbas December 20, 2011 at 7:12 AM #

    pretty stereotypical, words are slippery things to play with, and language is often inexact, so what is the objective meaning of “love” if there’s any?!

  29. Dori December 19, 2011 at 9:59 PM #

    I so agree with this story, cause I feel and also experienced with people who do have wealth and success on many occasions are very unhappy and distrusting of family and friends, and on the other hand people who have nothing are most hospitable and are very happy.
