    The Two Wolves
    One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside 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, compassion and faith."

    The grand son thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: "Which wolf wins?"

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


    I've seen this before but it's been a long time. Enjoy.

    Shoot 'em both or let either of 'em starve. You are the lion, it is your life to pick or chose who you are today depending on circumstances, not the wolves.
