We are far too easily pleased

Stumbled upon this small quote from C.S. Lewis today. Wanted to share it with you.

It would seem that our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half hearted creatures, fooling around with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered 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.

May we all stop being so easily pleased.
