Quote of the Day – Author Unknown

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 grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

  1. So simple, and yet so very true. There’s a lot to be learned from Native culture…. Thank you for sharing this Liz, I haven’t read this for a long while, and it’s a great reminder!


  2. You know Liz, when reading this I was just sitting there, staring at my screen and felt like I had found a little flame of light in my otherwise dark brain.
    Thank you very much for this blog post. I touched me more than you might think.
