"Good wine is growing in the brain, makes it witted, quick and inventive, full of fiery and beautiful pictures."

I have found many sites that give this translation, and all attribute it to Shakespeare. I have been unable to find, however, the text in which he wrote it. Maybe it is not something that he wrote but something he supposedly said.
