An old Cherokee told his grandson that
a battle that goes on inside each us.
The battle is between two 'wolves'.
One 'wolf' is Evil.
It has anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed,
arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority,
lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other 'wolf' is Good.
It has 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."
