"What Does Love Mean?"

A group of professional people posed this question to a group 0f four through eight year olds. "What does love mean"? The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think.

1. "Love is that first feeling you feel before all th bad stuff gets in the way."
2. "When some one loves you, the way they say your name is different You know that your name is safe in their mouth."
3. "Love is what makes you smile when you are tired."
4. "Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen."
5. "Love is when mommy gives daddy the best piece of chicken."
6. "Love cards like Valentine cards say stuff on them that we'd like to say ourselves. but we wouldn't be caught dead saying."
7. "Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him all day."
8. "Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other."
9. "Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your french fries without making them give you any of theirs."

As Art Linkleter use to say, "Kids say the darnedest things." I use to watch his show all the time.

That is probably a better version.
I dont believe much in love as we call it in the conventional sense.Have you thought about why we call it 'falling in love' we fall in to a pit or a trench? That is how it happens. It is as easy to fall out of it as it is to fall in. We dont fall in to friendships or marriages!

Hello Margaret,

Lovely insights about love. Some of them I have experienced and some of them I am not aware.

But tell me what are the following cases.
One, If a person can't sleep the whole night and keep tossing and turning in the bed thinking about another person of the opposite sex.
Two, when a person stare vacantly into space oblivious of people passing by thinking about the person or remembering the face of the person belonging to the opposite sex.
Three, when a persons heart beat rapidly increases just at the thought of meeting a person of the opposite sex.
I have gone through some of these. Do you think this is love or infatuation?

Best wishes,
