"We are far too easily pleased"

"It would seem that Our Lord finds
our desires not too strong, but too weak.
We are half-hearted creatures,
fooling about with drink and sex and ambition
when infinite joy is offered us,
like an ignorant child who wants to go on
making mud pies in a slum
because he cannot imagine
what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea.

We are far too easily pleased."
-C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory
