Yes, she's strange and different...but not THAT different.

Two wolves

I know this isn't original, but I feel it bears repeating:

One evening a wise old man 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 about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: "Which wolf wins?" The old man simply replied, "The one you feed."

    I absolutely love this. I looked for it on the web and didn't come across it. I'm happy it has a home here with you so I can read it when I need it.

    I don't even know where I first heard/read this, but it's been around in my head for a while. Somehow, the time seemed appropriate to post it ... so I did.
