: : : 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.

: "Written in Greeting Card"; I like that. I wish I had said that. (You will, Victoria, you will....)
