Grandfatherly Wisdom

Caught - Wolf in Trap

Caught - Wolf in Trap

From my cyber-friend Ian, this timely advice:

An old Cherokee tale tells of a grandfather talking to his grandson. The grandfather tells his grandson,

“Son, on the inside of every person a battle is raging between two wolves. One wolf is angry, jealous, unforgiving, violent, proud and lazy. The other wolf is filled with love, kindness, nonviolence, humility, and self-control. The two wolves are constantly fighting.”

The little boy thought about it, and said, “Grandfather, which wolf is going to win?”

The grandfather smiled and said, “whichever one you feed.”
