The other day I came across a Cherokee proverb that was shared on Facebook:

There is a battle of two wolves inside us all. One is evil — he is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, lies, inferiority and ego. The other is good — he is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy and truth. The wolf that wins? The one you feed.”

A basic search on the internet results in many references to the legend of the two wolves, mostly stated as a dialogue between an old man and his grandson, such as this one.

It reminded me of the poem Gorg (گرگ) by the popular 20th century Iranian poet, Fereydoon More >
