The Wisdom Of The Earth

"A loving heart is the truest wisdom." - Charles Dickens


"A prudent question is one half of wisdom." - Francis Bacon


"Peace and friendship with all mankind is our wisest policy, and I wish we may be permitted to pursue it." - Thomas Jefferson






An elder Cherokee Native American was teaching his grandchildren about life. He said to them, "A fight is going on inside me...It is a terrible fight, and it is between two wolves. One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, pride and superiority.

The other wolf stands for joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith. This same fight is going on inside you and every other person too."

They thought about it for a minute, and then one child asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one I feed."




PEACE.



Oooooo THAT is a very good lesson, isin't it? I like that one!

Happy 2007, R!

That's so good! Thanks for sharing it. A very happy new year from me and my family.

I will defintiely need to remember that one. Very true.

"The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and three hundred and sixty-two admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision." - Lynne Lavner*** I'm confused; curious; satisfied; realistically resigned to being a frustrated idealist; usually at peace with myself, but not always. Amazed at how little I know, and wondering how much I need to understand.
