Bev's Happy Owls

Feed a Wolf

If you're gonna feed a wolf... better be the right one:

In one Native American folk tale, a grandfather explains to his grandchildren that he has two wolves inside him. One wolf fills him with hope and reminds him how wonderful his life is; and the other fills him with doubt and convinces him that nothing is worth the effort. Sometimes both wolves are fighting each other.

The grandchildren ask, concerned for their grandfather, "Which wolf will win the fight?"

To which the grandfather replies, "Whichever one I feed."
