The Wolves Inside of Us

A battle of two wolves inside of us.

A saying about wolves inside of us that I like.  This comes from a story of a grandfather and a grandson of good and bad in us all.  The grandfather explains to the grandson that we all have good and bad inside of us.  They battle for control inside of us.  They are wolves.  The grandson asks which one wins.


There is a battle of two wolves inside of us all.

One is evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, lies, inferiority, superiority false pride and ego.

The other is good.  It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, compassion, kindness, empathy, and truth.

The wolf that wins?  The one you feed.
