The Two Wolves

This came in my email this morning and I thought I would share.

 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 Good. 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."
