One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a debate that goes on inside people.
He said, “My son, the battle between two wolves is 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 this for a moment and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
Thanks goes out to Wayne Mansfield for sharing this!
