Embarrassment of riches

Posted by Melinda Nowikowski on September 12, 1999

I've looked several different places trying to find some source for this phrase. It could well be Shakespeare, though I've read quite a bit of that and never come across it. The best I've been able to find is a definition (which I already knew) and some "muttered" commentary about it being common usage. Any ideas?
