The Old Cherokee Chief
An old Cherokee chief 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, self-doubt, and ego."
"The other is good — he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity,
humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth,
compassion and faith."
"This same flight is going on inside you — and inside every
other person, too."
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked
his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"
The old chief simply replied, "The one you feed."
