One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a
battle that was going on inside him. He said, “My son, the battle is
between two wolves. One is evil: anger, envy, sorrow, regret,
greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies,
false pride, superiority and ego.
The other wolf is good: joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.”
The grandson though about it for a moment and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?” The old man simply replied, “The one I feed.”
