An old Cherokee chief is teaching his grandson about life.
“A fight is going on inside me.” He said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.
One is evil: he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”
He continued, “The other is good: he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.”
The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied: “The one you feed.”
