a woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. she did not recognize them. she said "i don't think i know you, but you must be hungry. please come in and have something to eat." "is the man of the house home?" they asked. "no", she replied. "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" the woman went out and invited the men in... "we do not go into a house together", they replied "why is that?" she asked. one of the old men explained: "his name is wealth, pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to the other one "he is success, and i am love." then he added, "now go in 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" the wife disagreed. "my dear, why don't we invite success?" their daughter was listening from the other corner of the house. she jumped in with her 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 3 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 2 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 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!!!"

Give them all to my because, non of them is complete without the other components-you may be wealthy, but without love, you are a cold stone!
