One evening an old Cherokee chief told his grandson about a great battle that goes on inside people.
He said, “My boy, the battle is between 2 ‘wolves’ inside us all.
One is Evil. It is anger, envy, 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.”
