A Cherokee Legend ~ Two Wolves

This was emailed to me a few years back, and has hung on our office wall ever since…thought it a worthy share…

Two Wolves

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fightis going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. Oneis evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity,guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority,and ego.” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy,peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy,generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is goingon 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.”
