The story of two wolves:

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a debate that goes on inside all people.
He said,

“My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.
One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, egret, 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

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather,
“Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee replied simply, “ The one you feed.”

“So I would like to warn all of you that time flies. Time is of the essence and there is no time like the present. And although in all likelihood you will agree with this; you will still not alter the way you live. I barely did. No one ever does. If nothing else, at least be aware of the value of time. One thing is certain – when you spend money, it is always possible to acquire more. Once you have spent time, it is gone forever. So make sure that you do the meaningful things while there is still time.
And remember that the harsh reality of age is that you become more choose-able and less desirable!”
