The Battle

I'm not sure where this originates from; it was emailed to me earlier 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 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."
