Quotes & Stories


Often times in life we just can't find the words to express a word, thought, or feeling. Sometimes a quote will really make sense, or mean something so deeply that we instantly connect with it. I have taken quotes from many different areas (literature, spoken word, music, etc.). Some of the quotes may come from a darker place, a place of pain and despair. I do not intend to offend anyone, my hope is that through these quotes someone may be able to find a connection to a part of thier life. If you or someone you know has a very strong reaction to a quote it may be beneficial to talk to someone about it. I hope to update this page regularly.

Cheroke Legend of the Two Wolves

An old Grandfather said to his grandson, who came to him with anger at a friend who had done him an injustice, "Let me tell you a story.
I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those that have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do. But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy. It is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die. I have struggled with these feelings many times." He continued, "It is as if there are two wolves inside me. One is good and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him, and does not take offense when no offense was intended. He will only fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way. But the other wolf, ah! He is full of anger. The littlest thing will set him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone, all the time, for no reason. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is helpless anger, for his anger will change nothing.Sometimes, it is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit." The boy looked intently into his Grandfather's eyes and asked, "Which one wins, Grandfather?" The Grandfather smiled and quietly said, "The one I feed."
