"And success attend it..." (or something like it) does not occur in
Shakespeare (Bartlett Concordance dixit)

What about the Prayer for Resignation to God's Will:

Lord, if what I seek be according to our will,
then let it come to pass
and let success attend the outcome.
But if not, my God,
let it not come to pass.
Do not leave me to my own devices,
for you know how unwise I can be.
Keep me safe under your protection Lord my God,
and in your own gentle way guide me
and rule me as you know best.

or perhaps one of the other 271 hits found by using Yahoo / Google...

Edna Z. Boris asks:

>Someone has asked me to identify where the following comes from: "And
>success attend it" - is the quote even accurate?

Could this be an Englished line from Virgil?  An online site at:

http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/jod/AG/allgre.340.html

gives it as:

macte nova virtute puer (Aen. ix. 641), success attend your valor, boy!

Someone else looked for "success" and worked from there; I looked for
attachments to the word "attend".

Humphrey of Gloucester's departing lines after he relinquishes his staff
to Henry VI:

   Farewell, good King; when I am dead and gone,
   May honourable peace attend thy throne!   Exit (II.ii.)

At the end of Henry VIII, regarding the baby Elizabeth:

[CRANMER.]                  All princely graces
   That mould up such a mighty piece as this is,
   With all the virtues that attend the good,
   Shall still be doubled on her. (V.v.)

Portia's leave-taking from Belmont:

PORTIA. My people do already know my mind,
   And will acknowledge you and Jessica
   In place of Lord Bassanio and myself.
   So fare you well till we shall meet again.
 LORENZO. Fair thoughts and happy hours attend on you!
 JESSICA. I wish your ladyship all heart's content. (III.iv.)

Viola's leave-taking of Olivia:

   There lies your way, due west.
 VIOLA. Then westward-ho!
   Grace and good disposition attend your ladyship!  (III.i.)

But no "attend it" by itself. I don't know whether these help. I
particularly enjoyed being reminded of Lorenzo's line, "Fair thoughts
and happy hours attend on you!"

Peace and joy,
Ann Carrigan
