One evening an old Cherokee chief was sitting at the campfire with his
grandson and told him about a battle that goes on inside of 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, gratitude, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”
The grandson thought deeply about this for a while and then asked, “Which wolf wins, Grandfather?”
The old Cherokee looked lovingly at his grandson and replied, “The one you feed.”
