A Cherokee elder sitting with his grandchildren told them;

“In every life there is a terrible fight – a fight between two wolves.

One is evil: he is fear, anger, envy, greed, arrogance, self-pity, resentment and deceit.

The other is good: joy, serenity, humility, confidence, generosity, truth, gentleness and compassion.”

A child asked, “Grandfather, which wolf will win?”

The elder looked him in the eye, “The one you feed”
