Running through my mind...

An 86-year-old lady's remark.

She said, "The most remarkable thing about getting older...is how much you still feel the same inside."

My father used to say the same thing, and the older I get the more I understand what he meant.

The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak...

This is precisely the genesis of Descartes' thoughts about the mind as a separate entity from the body, and still a rather big mystery as we try to figure out what the "mind" is. How is it we go to sleep at night, or we have general anesthesia, yet we wake up with the sense that we are the same person?
