old Cherokee Indian was speaking to his grandson:
fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy. "It is
a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil--he is
anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt,
resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is good -- he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity,
humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth,
compassion, and faith. This same fight is going on inside you, and
inside every other person, too."
grandson thought about it for a long minute, and then asked his
grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"
old Cherokee replied simply, "The one you feed."
