These are truisms that only kids can express. 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

"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

without making them give you any of theirs." -Chrissy - age 6

"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

presents and listen."- Bobby - age 5

hate."- Nikka - age 6

and has to go out and buy new ones."- Lauren - age 4

out of you."- Karen - age 7
