As the legend goes, one evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said:
"My son, the battle is between two 'wolves' 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 grandson thought for a moment and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf wins?"
The old Cherokee replied simply, "The one you feed."

Beware which wolf you feed
I clipped this out of the newspaper several years ago and have it hanging on the side of my fridge.
