The one you feed (a Cherokee story)

  One evening, an elderly Cherokee brave told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.  My dear one, the battle between two wolves is 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 this for a moment and then asked his grandfather, Which wolf wins?

The old Cherokee replied, 
The one you feed.
