As you wish

Wikipedia, on The Princess Bride:

In a Renaissance-era world a beautiful young woman named Buttercup lives on a farm in the country of Florin. She delights in verbally abusing the farm hand Westley, whom she refers to as “farm boy”, by demanding that he perform chores for her. Westley’s only answer is “As you wish”. She eventually realizes that what he is really saying is, “I love you.”

How powerful it is to show love with humility and patience.

What would happen in my marriage, my friendships, and my relationships with my neighbors if I answered every comment and request with “as you wish” – even if only silently, in my head?
