The one you feed

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside all people.
He said, « My son, the battle is between two wolves 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, generosity, compassion and faith. »
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then  asked  his grandfather, « Which wolf wins? »
The old Cherokee simply replied, « The one you feed. »
