The spirit is weak: the flesh is willing

Screen Shot 2016-06-12 at 10.02.00Commitment, says Dalrymple (from 9:55),

automatically, though voluntarily, precludes many other possibilities.

Many people today, he points out,

want to keep their possibilities open for the rest of their lives, as if they were seven years old.

Commitments, it is true, were sometimes broken because

the flesh is weak, however willing is the spirit. But now we’ve reached the stage where the spirit is weak and the flesh is willing. The results are not delightful to observe close up.
