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
broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined.
See what you think: (sometimes children as SO smart;) )

"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 just 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 (Wow!)

"If you want to learn to love better, you should start with
a friend who you hate,"
Nikka - age 6 (we need a few million more Nikka's on this planet)

"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 I was 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 5

"Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still
says he is handsomer than Robert Redford."
Chris - age 7

"Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day."
Mary Ann - age 4

"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." (what an imagination)
Karen - age 7

"Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't
think it's gross."
Mark - age 6

"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 - age 8

More Kids on Love;)

Questions concerning love and wisdom were posed to a group of children ages 5 to 10. Their responses were amazingly astute and very enlightening, thus proving that all we need to know, we probably learned in kindergarten.

WHAT IS THE PROPER AGE TO GET MARRIED?

* ?Eighty-four. Because at that age, you don?t have to work anymore, and you can spend all your time loving each other in your bedroom.? ?Judy, 8
* ?Once I?m done with kindergarten, I?m going to find me a wife.? ?Tommy, 5

WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?

* ?On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.? ?Mike, 10

WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?

* ?You should never kiss a girl unless you have enough bucks to buy her a big ring and her own VCR, ?cause she?ll want to have videos of the wedding.? ?Jim, 10
* ?Never kiss in front of other people. It?s a big embarrassing thing if anybody sees you. But if nobody sees you, I might be willing to try it with a handsome boy, but just for a few hours.? ?Kally, 9
* ?It?s never okay to kiss a boy. They always slobber all over you...that?s why I stopped doing it.? ?Jean, 10

THE GREAT DEBATE: IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED?

* ?It?s better for girls to be single, but not for boys. Boys need somebody to clean up after them.? ?Lynette, 9
* ?It gives me a headache to think about that stuff. I?m just a kid. I don?t need that kind of trouble.? ?Kenny, 7

CONCERNING WHY LOVE HAPPENS BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE

* ?No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with how you smell. That?s why perfume and deodorant are so popular.? -Jan, 9
* ?I think you?re supposed to get shot with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn?t supposed to be so painful.? ?Harlen, 8

ON WHAT FALLING IN LOVE IS LIKE

* ?Like an avalanche where you have to run for your life.? ?Roger, 9
* ?If falling in love is anything like learning to spell, I don?t want to do it. It takes too long to learn.? ?Leo, 7

ON THE ROLE OF GOOD LOOKS IN LOVE AND ROMANCE

* ?If you want to be loved by somebody who isn?t already in your family, it doesn?t hurt to be beautiful.? ?Jeanne, 8
* ?It isn?t always just how you look. Look at me. I?m handsome like anything and I haven?t got anybody to marry me yet.? -Gary, 7
* ?Beauty is skin deep. But how rich you are can last a long time.? -Christine, 9

WHY LOVERS OFTEN HOLD HANDS

* ?They want to make sure their rings don?t fall off, because they paid good money for them.? ?David, 8

CONFIDENTIAL OPINIONS ABOUT LOVE

* ?I?m in favor of love as long as it doesn?t happen when ?The Simpsons? are on TV.? ?Anita, 6
* ?Love will find you, even if you are trying to hide from it. I?ve been trying to hide from it since I was five, but the girls keep finding me.? ?Bobby, 8
* ?I?m not rushing into being in love. I?m finding fourth grade hard enough.? ?Regina, 10

PERSONAL QUALITIES NECESSARY TO BE A GOOD LOVER

* ?One of you should know how to write a check. Because, even if you have tons of love, there is still going to be a lot of bills.? ?Ava, 8

SOME SUREFIRE WAYS TO MAKE A PERSON FALL IN LOVE WITH YOU

* ?Tell them that you own a whole bunch of candy stores.? ?Del, 6
* ?Don?t do things like have smelly, green sneakers. You might get attention, but attention ain?t the same thing as love.? ?Alonzo, 9
* ?One way is to take the girl out to eat. Make sure it?s something she likes to eat. French fries usually works for me.? ?Bart, 9

HOW CAN YOU TELL IF TWO ADULTS EATING DINER AT A RESTAURANT ARE IN LOVE?

* ?Just see if the man picks up the check. That?s how you can tell if he?s in love.? ?John, 9
* ?Lovers will just be staring at each other and their food will get cold. Other people care more about the food,? ?Brad, 8
* ?It?s love if they order one of those desserts that are on fire. They like to order those because it?s just like their hearts are on fire.? ?Christine,9

WHAT MOST PEOPLE ARE THINKING WHEN THEY SAY ?I LOVE YOU?

* ?The person is thinking: Yeah, I really do love him, but I hope he showers at least once a day.? ?Michelle, 9

HOW A PERSON LEARNS TO KISS

* ?You learn it right on the spot, when the gooshy feelings get the best of you.? ?Doug, 7
* ?It might help if you watched soap operas all day.? ?Carin, 9

WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?

* ?It?s never okay to kiss a boy. They always slobber all over you...that?s why I stopped doing it.? ?Jean, 10

HOW TO MAKE LOVE ENDURE

* ?Spend most of your time loving instead of going to work.? ?Tom, 7
* ?Don?t forget your wife?s name...that will mess up the love.? ?Roger,8
* ?Be a good kisser. It might make your wife forget that you never take the trash out.? ?Randy, 8

"Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude.
It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth.
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends."

1 Corinthians 13:4-8a

"Family love is stronger than steel and concrete.
It is like the wind.
Instinctive, raw, fragile, beautiful.
At times angry but always unstoppable.
It is our collective breath.
It is the world?s greatest force."
~ Quoted from the M.I.L.K AV file: http://www.milkphotos.com/milkav2.htm

Like soliqa I was crying and laughing. They are great! Children are so insightful.

I like this one: "Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's gross." ~ Mark - age 6

I must love my boyfriend then...

One I read once was "how can you tell if people are married?" One answer was "You can tell because they are both shouting at the same children."
