Two Wolves

Two Wolves
Author Unknown

An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life. The old chief told his grandson, “Inside each of us there is a terrible fight between two wolves…

One is evil – he feels and inflicts anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego…

The other is good – he feels and shares joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.”

The grandson thought about this for a little while and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old chief replied very simply, “The one you feed.”


Sometimes it’s good to put things in perspective. Just take a moment to take a step back, look around and really see what is important to you. It’s good to be reminded that all too often happiness is simply a choice.
