The Story of the 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 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 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.»
