The line is found in Shakespeare's comedy "The Merchant of Venice," Act 4, Scene 1, Line 411. Portia says this to Antonio. The two are expressing contentment in their relationship and love. The lines immediately preceding Portia's comment find Antonio pledging his "love and service to you evermore."
