"A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.
"Its a terrible fight between two wolves. One is 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, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside of you; inside every other person too."
The grandson thought for a moment then he asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"
The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."
