Fighting Wolves

Someone on one of the lists I run posted this today … I thought it was worth publishing:

An elder Cherokee chief took his grandchildren into the forest and sat
them down and said to them, “A fight is going on inside me. This is a
terrible fight and it is a fight between two wolves. One wolf is the
wolf of fear, anger, arrogance and greed. The other wolf is the wolf of
courage, kindness, humility and love.” The children were very quiet and
listening to their grandfather with both their ears. He then said to
them, “This same fight between the two wolves that is going on inside of
me is going on inside of you, and inside every person.” They thought
about it for a minute and then one child asked the chief, “Grandfather,
which wolf will win the fight?” He said quietly, “The one you feed.”
