很多大人未必知道什么是爱。

—– mahu 按

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds: “What does love mean?”

一组专业人员向一群四到八岁的孩子问了这样一个问题:“爱是什么意思?”

The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think…

结果答案的广度和深度却出乎所有人意料之外。看看你是怎么想的……

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.”
