: : I have spent a good deal of time, unsuccessfully, searching for the following supposed Shakespeare quote, "love asks me no questions, and gives me infinite support." Is this really a quote from w.s. and if so from what? Thanks a lot for your help.

: :I googled and found a whole slew of "romantic quotations" sites saying it is by WS. But none of them gives a reference and I must say it doesn't sound Shakespearean or even 16th century at all.

It cannot be Shakespeare. He wrote in English. This (particularly the infinite support) is written in Greeting Card. The vague religiosity and saccharine sentiment is a touchy-feely sentimentalism unknown to the bard.
