Love is Cheese. And Monsters.

As part of a school project on Jean Piaget (her favorite Swiss developmental psychologist), Mary asked each of her four younger siblings two philosophical questions.
The two questions were...
What is Love?
What is Life?
And here are their answers...
Henry (age 7)

"Love is something or someone like a girlfriend that you never want to loose.
 You want to be with them for the rest of your life. 
You don't want to ever break up."

"Life is like you're doing something. 
Life is not standing like a tree.
 (even though a tree is still living) 
You get smarter in your future."
Jamie (age 9)
"Love is romantic stuff. 
Something you want to keep."

"Life is when you have to think about everything that you are doing,
all of your life, the whole time."
Lily (age 11)
"Love is when you feel pure happiness with someone."

"The meaning of life is to fulfill your destiny."
Rosie (age3)
"Life is the beach."
"Love is cheese.
And monsters."
