(I’ve read this before, but it got posted by a friend so I wanted to reshare it):

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 all:

One is EVIL. It is anger … envy … sorrow … jealousy …regret … greed … arrogance … self-pity … guilt … resentment … inferiority … lies … false pride … superiority … ego !!

The other is GOOD. It is joy… peace… love… hope… serenity… humility… kindness… benevolence… empathy… generosity… truth… compassion… 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.”
