An old Cherokee told his grandson about a fight that's going on inside him.  He said it's between two wolves. 

One is evil: anger, fear, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.... 

The other is good: joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith... 

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather,  "Which wolf wins?" 

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