One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson
about a battle that goes on inside all people.
He said, "My son, the battle is between two
"One is Evil.
It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed,
arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority,
lies, false pride, superiority and ego.
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 will win?"
The old Cherokee simply replied:
"The one you feed."
