Cheesy perhaps, but true for me today

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, 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 grandfather replies: “The one you feed”.
