One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson
about a battle that goes on inside people. He
said, 'My son, the battle is between two 'wolves'
inside us all. One is evil. It is anger, envy,
jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance,
self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies,
false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope,
serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence,
empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.'The grandson
thought about it for a minute and
then asked his grandfather, 'Which wolf wins?'
The old Cherokee simply replied, 'The one you feed.'
