Anecdote: The one you feed wins

A Cherokee old man once told his grandson, “There are two wolves inside each of us, my little boy.

One of them is Evil. It is jealousy, anger, hatred, cruel and resentment.

The other is Good. It is kind, sensitive, truthful and has empathy.”

After a few minutes, the grandson could not contain his curiosity anymore and asked,”Which wolf wins, grandpa?”

After a brief pause, the Cherokee old man replied,”The one you feed”.
