What is Love?
What does love mean? A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, What does love mean? The answers they got were broaderand deeper than anyone could have imagined :
When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend
over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather
does it for her all the time, even when his hands got
arthritis too. That's love. Rebecca - age 8
When someone loves you, the way they say your name is
different. You know that your name is safe in their
mouth. Billy - age 4
Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on
shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.
Karl - age 5
Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most
of your French fries without making them give you any
of theirs. Chrissy - age 6
Love is what makes you smile when you're tired. Terri - age 4
Love is when my Mommy makes coffee for my Daddy and
she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure
the taste is OK. Danny - age 7
Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get
tired of kissing, you still want to be together and
you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They
look gross when they kiss. Emily - age 8
Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if
you stop opening presents and listen. Bobby - age 7
If you want to learn to love better, you should start
with a friend who you hate. Nikka - age 6
Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then
he wears it everyday. Noelle - age 7
Love is like a little old woman and a little old man
who are still friends even after they know each other
so well. Tommy - age 6
During my piano recital, I was on a stage and scared.
I looked at all the people watching me and saw my
Daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing
that. I wasn't scared anymore. Cindy - age 8
My Mommy loves me more than anybody. You don't see
anyone else kissing me to sleep at night. Clare - Age 6
Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of
chicken. Elaine - age 6
Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and
still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford. Chris - age 7
I know my older sister loves me because she gives me
all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new
ones. Lauren - age 4
When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down
and little stars come out of you. Karen - age 7
Love is when your puppy licks your face even after
you left him alone all day. Mary Ann - age 4
You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean
it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget. Jessica -
Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a
contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the
contest was to find the most caring child. The winner
was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was
an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the
old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just
sat there. When his mother asked him what he had said
to the neighbor, the little boy said, "Nothing, I just
helped him cry."
There. Now isn't that nicer than death or evil?
