Two WolvesOne 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 usOne is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and egoThe 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 and nurture."
