True love is about giving, it is what you put into a relationship and that is what life is worth living for because it is the way you show your credibility and integrity and selflessness day in and day out, everyday of your life. It's selflessness and doing the right thing for your partner and your family.

He doesn't say "shalom", he says "As you wish"!!! I even double-checked the movie script before I commented. (http://www.imsdb.com/scripts/Princess-Bride,-The.html) I don't really get what the Jewlarious staff are looking for here... The question is "What is true love?" but the movie snippet has more to do with burning ambitions, loss of self confidence, and above all, the hope bordering on absolute belief that everything will turn out for the best... BTW, a theme only found in the movie, not the book (although that is a great read, too)

As the grandfather leaves his sick grandson, he speaks the only word of Hebrew inthe film, "Shalom". The fact that: the director, author, several of the lead characters, etc. are Jewish could make this classic and iconic film a "Jewish consipracy"!....for the betterment of theworld, that is!
True love, after all is the greatest thing in the world!
