Clicking around, one stumbles upon some interesting tidbits. I found this on a USA Today commenter’s profile:
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 young grandson thought about this for a minute or two and then asked his grandfather ….. Which wolf wins?
The old Cherokee replied simply ….. The one you feed!
