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 to us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in the 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’ sermon preached on June 8, 1942

From T1:9.
