"Dagnabbit, Joy! Keep that up and it's the dutch oven for you!"

- C.S. Lewis, Private Correspondence, "re: Honeymoon"
I remember in the Hopkin's film, "Shadowlands," {Hopkins portraying Lewis] saying to her upon their meeting, "I like a good fight." From what I gather, Joy Gresham was an equal match for him.
"At present we're on the wrong side of the door. But all the pages of the New Testament are rustling with the rumor that it will not always be so." ~ C.S. Lewis

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth, only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair.” ― C.S. Lewis

Not exactly a C.S. Lewis quote, but maybe a good starting point for a foray by anybody interested in learning more about C.S. Lewis and/or Shakespeare....

The Shakespeare Scholar Who Crossed Swords with C.S. Lewis
Father Peter Milward SJ, who died on August 16 at the ripe old age of ninety-one, was one of a kind. An Englishman who spent most of his life teaching in Japan, he was a pioneering Shakespeare scholar, an authority on the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins, and an acquaintance of C.S. Lewis.
...
Having listed St. Ignatius Loyola, St. Thomas Aquinas, William Shakespeare, Blessed John Henry Newman, Gerard Manley Hopkins, and G.K. Chesterton as having “exercised a profound influence on [his] mind through their lives and writings,” he singled Lewis out for special praise.
...
In his replies to Fr. Milward’s letters, we learn all sorts of valuable tidbits about Lewis and his work which might otherwise have been unknown to us.
...
Apart from his controversial crossing of swords with Lewis, Fr. Milward will be remembered as a pioneering scholar of Shakespeare, discovering in the Bard’s plays and poems convincing evidence for his Catholicism.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Then do I envy solid folk
Who sit of evenings by the fire,
After their work and doze and smoke,
And are not fretted by desire.
-C.S. Lewis, Spirits in Bondage

Lewis wrote "our Lord is like the dentists......"

Image

‘Make no mistake,’ He says, ‘if you let me, I will make you perfect. The moment you put yourself in My hands, that is what you are in for. Nothing less, or other, than that. You have free will, and if you choose, you can push Me away. But if you do not push Me away, understand that I am going to see this job through. Whatever suffering it may cost you in your earthly life, whatever inconceivable purification it may cost you after death, whatever it costs Me, I will never rest, nor let you rest, until you are literally perfect— until my Father can say without reservation that He is well pleased with you, as He said He was well pleased with me. This I can do and will do. But I will not do anything less.’

~ C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity (1952; Harper Collins: 2001) 201-202.
