'We may mock the pretension...

I came across this at my mother's house. She had it written down on a piece of paper and she said she got it out of a paper about 20 years ago. It said 'We may mock the pretension and hypocrisy, yet we yearn for the purity and innocence of an idealised childhood'. Can anybody explain what this means? Thank You.
