One Quote; Two Collages

21 Feb

I’ve always loved this CS Lewis quote:

Indeed when we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the rewards promised in the gospels it would seem that our Lord finds our desires not to strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy has been offered us like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot understand what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.

So I decided a couple of days ago that I’d like to create a collage to showcase this particular quotation. It turned out that the first text I printed off was too large for me to use as I had intended, so I reprinted it. Later someone suggested a circular arrangement for the text, so I decided to make a second collage with the larger text. I’m not sure which I like better; they’re very different from one another. Here they are — what do you think?
