Quotes

Love, as perceived by some
children 4 to 8 years-of-age

Sponsored link.

This list is found in hundreds of locations in the Internet. There is no way to know whether it is a real collection of children's sayings or a hoax. But, ultimately, it doesn't really matter.

Children aged 4 to 8 were asked "What does 'love' mean. These are allegedly some selected responses.
 
bulletRebecca- age 8: "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."
 
bulletBilly - age 4: "When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth."
 
bulletKarl - age 5: "Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other."
 
bulletChrissie - age 6: "Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs."
 
bulletTerri - age 4: "Love is what makes you smile when you're tired."
 
bulletDanny - age 7: "Love is when my mummy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK."
 
bulletEmily - age 8: "'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 Mummy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss."

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"
