This might be old stuff........
But I think it is totally TRUE.........and very relevant to the discussions on this board.
Wisdom for this week
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a
battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between 2 "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 Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

A scorpion see's a turtle about the cross the Jordan river, "Mr.Turtle may I have a lift on your back please, I've to get to the other side but can't get there without you". "And why should I give you a lift?" asks the turtle "You'll sting me and kill me". "Why would I do that, then we'd both drown" replies the scorpion. "OK, hop on" says the turtle. Half way accross the river the scorpion stings the turtle, the turtle looks up at the scorpion and through his dying breath asks "Why did you do that, now we're both going to die"..."Because its the middle east, its what we do", replies the drowning scorpion.
Pretty sad really!.
