An old Cherokee was teaching his grandchildren about life.
He said to them:
“A fight is going on inside me and it is between two wolves
One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pried, superiority and ego.
The other wolf stands for joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.
This same fight is going on inside you and inside any other person, too.”
The grandchildren thought about it for a minute and then one child asks his grandfather:
“Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied:
“The one you feed!”
