The battle is between two “wolves” inside us



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
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 grandfather:  "Which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, 

"The one you feed and nurture."
