The Two Wolves

An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life. Here is what he told the boy.

“Inside every one of us, there are two wolves who are always fighting.

One wolf is evil. He is anger, lies, greed, arrogance, envy, resentment, and ego.

The other wolf is good. He is love, joy, peace, kindness, hope, humility, generosity, truth, and faith.

This fight between good and evil is going on inside you—and inside every other person as well.”

The grandson thought about his grandfather’s story for a minute and then asked,

“Which wolf will win? The good one or the bad one?”

The old chief quietly replied:

“The one you feed.”
