An elderly native-American is telling his grandson about a fight that is going on inside of the young man -- he describes it as a "battle between two wolves."
One wolf is evil: lazy, angry, selfish, full of self-pity, resentment and excuses. He wants to stray from the pack.
One wolf is good: hard-working, joyous, filled with hope, humility, kindness. He wants to lead the pack.
After some thought, the grandson looks to his grandfather and ask, "Which wolf will win?"
To which the grandfather replies, "The one you feed."
