Cherokee wisdom

(voor de (vrije) Nederlandse vertaling: klik hier)


An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life.


“A fight is going on inside me”, he said to the boy.

“It is a terrible fight and it’s between two wolves.”


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


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


“This same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person too.”


The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:

“Which wolf will win?”


The old chief simply replied:

“The one you feed.”
