A pair of wolves inspect their possessions

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 Bad. It is anger, envy, jealousy, greed, arrogance, self-pity, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, courage, 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.”
