The Two Wolves

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?”

which wolf wins? the one you feed

The old Cherokee simply replied: “The one you feed.”
