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 2 "wolves" inside us all.

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

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."
