    "An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy. "It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil. He is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is good. He is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevole...nce, 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 Cherokee replied simply, "The one you feed." - Cherokee Wisdom

    *Like*

    It seems all hunter/gatherer societies came up with this same kind of wisdom expressed in different ways. I'd love to have seen how cherokee/eskimo/kalahari bushmen etc societies worked. With wisdom like this literally being taught to everyone in a society, can imagine it worked out to be a pretty peaceful and full life for everyone involved.
