A group of professional people posed this question to group of 4 to 8 year-olds. What does love mean? The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined.See what you think...... "Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other." ----Karl----age5 "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----age8 "Love is when someone hurts you.And you get so mad but you don't yell at them because you know it would hurt their feelings." ----Samantha----age6 "Love is what makes you smile when you are tired." ----Terri----age4 "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----age7 "Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt,then he will wears it everyday." ----Noelle----age7 "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----age6 "During my piano recital,I was on a atage 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----age8 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I think children are actually much more observant and objective than most people expect. As children, their minds are more eager to explore everything, as opposed to an adult, who tends to develop a sort of ego that ignores things which they believe to be insignificant and easily understood. In addition, the children are less influenced by selfish reasons such as seeming intelligent or seeming respectable, they answer questions more honestly I think. But clearly these responses are extremely influenced by what they see from their parents, maybe this is why the world takes so long to change...we only make minor adjustments per generation. Teach the children well and let them lead the way :)

OUt of the mouths of babes,we could all learn a bit from these fresh innocent little ones. love does not have to be as darned complex as we modern adults make it out to be.. love is like a little old man and a little old woman who are still friends even after they know each other so well, tommy said it all, so simply. lol.

Very adorable! I love those quotes. Love is when soemone lets you take a sip first. I like that one most of all. Because it's true. When someone thinks of your comfort or needs before their own, then that is really love. Be well and best of luck finding the one true person that can make your heart leap for joy. Have a blessed day.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast,it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. "God is Love" and I want to let you know that God loves you! Have a nice day!!!

the things that you didn't even before to that person and even to yourself. It's unconditionally.
