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 oninside you - and inside every other person, too.”The grandson thought about it for a minute, and then asked hisgrandfather, “Which wolf will win?”The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
