Feed The Good Wolf

A Native American is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.

"It is 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, and ego." He continued, "The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you - and inside everyone."

The grandson thought about it and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

The Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

Feed (and clothe!) the good wolf!
