One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson
about a battle that was going on inside himself.
He said, "My son, it is between two wolves....
One is evil: Anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment,
inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.
The other is good: 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 I feed".
