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
'Which wolf will win?'

The old Cherokee simply replied,
'The one you feed.'
