C.S. Lewis (Ignorance)

CAPTION: "Photo courtesy"

“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.”1

C. S. Lewis
