One evening, an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that rages on inside people.
He said, "My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all."
"One is Evil; It is anger, depression, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed,
arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, pessimism, lies, false pride,
unhappiness, superiority and ego.'
"The other is Good: It is joy, peace, love, hope, happiness, optimism,
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."
