Two Foxes

One evening a father told his son about a battle that goes on  inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between two 'foxes' inside us all. "One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego. " The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."

The son thought about it for a minute and then asked his father : " Which fox wins ? "

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed! "
