Our desires are too weak…

“Indeed, if we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewads promised in the Gospels, it would seem that Our Lord finds our hearts not too strong, but too weak.  We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with sex and drink 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.”

~Lewis, The Weight of Glory, 26
