Two wolves

a painting of a wolf

An old Cherokee told his grandson: "My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, and resentment, inferiority, lies and ego. The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, and truth."

 

The boy thought about it, and asked: "Grandfather, which wolf wins?"

 

The old man quietly replied, "The one you feed."
