A Cherokee legend found by Adrian:
One evening, an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said, "My son, there is a battle 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."
His grandson thought about it for a minute and then he asked his grandfather, "Which wolf wins ?"
The old Cherokee simply replies, "The one you feed."
