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 the situation for a minute…
He then asked his grandfather,
“Which wolf wins?
The old Cherokee simply replied,
“The one you feed.”
