An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside of me," he said to the boy. "It is a terrible fight and it is 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. The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith. This same fight is going on 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 replied, simply, "The one you feed the most."


I think that I have actually heard a simplified version of this tale. The one that I heard was very simple, good wolf, bad wolf (except I can't remember if the one I heard was a wolf or something else). The one I heard didn't specify Cherokee, but the point was the same. I thought it was ok at the time, but seeing the better version, it's not just "ok", I really like it. Thanks.
