'Love' (or 'another lazy post')

I was just listening to Mae and looked up the lyrics for their song Suspension. Some guy had commented on the lyrics and in his signature wrote "Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other..."

I have this thing where I assume most things I see on the internet are quote from somewhere else so I googled it and came up with a list of people's thoughts about love. On this fine day when Love is pretty much the theme everyone is thinking about (due to Becca and Joe's beautiful wedding) I thought it fitting to share what I found.

"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."

"When someone loves you, the way they say your
name is different. You know that your name is
safe in their mouth."

"Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy
puts on shaving cologne and they go out and
smell each other."

"Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody
most of your French fries without making them give
you any of theirs."

"Love is what makes you smile when you're tired."

"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."

"Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if
you stop opening presents and listen,"

"If you want to learn to love better, you should
start with a friend whom you hate."

"There are two kinds of love. Our love. God's love.
But God makes both kinds of them."

"Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt,
then he wears it everyday."

"Love is like a little old woman and a little old
man who are still friends even after they know
each other so well."

"My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don't see
anyone else kissing me to sleep at night."

"Love is when mommy gives daddy the best piece of

"Love is when mommy sees daddy smelly and sweaty and
still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford."

"Love is when your puppy licks your face even after
you left him alone all day."

"I know my older sister loves me because she gives
me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy
new ones."

"I let my big sister pick on me because my Mom says
she only picks on me because she loves me. So I pick
on my baby sister because I love her."

"When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and
down and little stars come out of you."

"Love is when mommy sees daddy on the toilet and she
doesn't think it's gross."

"You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you
mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it
a lot. People forget."

I don't think any of that is love - I think they are what love motivates people to do. regrets happen when people confuse loving actions with love
