Two Wolves – A Cherokee Legend

An old man is teaching his grandson about life:

“A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.

“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.  One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.”

He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, truth, compassion, and faith.  The same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old man simply replied, “The one you feed.”
