The Wolves In Us

This is an old Cherokee saying and probably the best I’ve ever heard life explained….

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. 
He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves 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 God – 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 wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
