One evening, an elderly
Cherokee brave 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 has anger, strife,
envy, jealousy, sorrow,
regret, greed, arrogant,
self-pity, guilt, resentment,
inferiority, lies, false pride,
superiority, and egocentric .
The other is good.
It has joy, peace love, hope, serenity,
humility, kindness, benevolence,
truth, compassion and faith."
The grandson thought about
it for a minute and then asked
"Which wolf wins?..."
The old Cherokee simply replied,
"The one that you feed."
