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.”
