Definitions of love

How do you define love? Well this how a group of children did it. Karl, age five, says: “Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving lotion and they go out and smell each other.” Mary Ann, age four, says: “Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.” Tommy, age six, says: “Love is like a little old man and a little old woman who are still friends even after they know each other so well.” Bobby, age five, says: “Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.” Jenny, age seven, says: “There are two kinds of love: God’s love and our love. But God makes both kinds.”
Maybe we should listen to children more often. They see the world with fresh eyes, and instinctively know what is true.
