A wise young child once said...
« on: July 04, 2006, 07:42:06 PM »
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:


"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
I Love this one!!!

"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 Brad Pitt."
   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  image)
  Karen - age 7


"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     


And the final one -- 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 what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy  said,
  "Nothing, I just helped him cry" .

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.  We ask ourselves.."Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?  Actually, who are you not to be?"
