Two wolves inside us

An old wise man once pulled his young grandson aside after seeing him in a fit of anger one morning. He told his grandson a story,
 
“Son, there’s a battle between two wolves inside us all.
 
“One wolf is good. It’s love, courage, peacy, joy, and humility. The other is evil. It’s hate, anger, jealousy, and greed.”
 
The boy pondered this a moment, and asked, “Grandpa… Which wolf wins?”
 
The old man remained quiet for a moment, then replied, “The one you feed.”
