Old Indian Wisdom

An old Cherokee 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, and ego. The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. This same fight 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 Cherokee simply replied, The one you feed.
