"fair and square, who isn't there"

Posted by Tony Langford on July 11, 2005

"fair and square, who isn't there" is the tail end of a quotation which argued that beguilers can win by default. I heard that it originated from Shakespeare, but I cannot find it in Shakespeare references. I would like to know the full quotation and its origins. Thanks.
