where the sparkle in the eyes comes from

a book recently, I became concerned that I did not have clear and strong will about what I wanted to do, thinking it was a symptom of learned helplessness. Now I realize that such lack of strong desire is mostly irrelevant.

“Very truly I tell you, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.” Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him, “Follow me!” – John 21:18-19
