    Can't remember quite how this saying goes???

    I've heard a saying - something about everyone having within themselves a Wolf and something else Good & when asked which one is stronger the answer is "depends on which one you feed"

    or something like that.

    Anyone here know how this goes???
    For God, Family and Country!

    Excellent story, I just passed it along to others.

    BTW I recall hearing a quote by Will Rogers, though I can't find it anywhere, much less in any list of his notable quotes online. The quote goes something like........"when people live together in large groups (or cities?) they all tend to become riled up (cranky?)". Does this quote ring a bell with anyone?

    "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."

    There's and old bull and a young bull on top of the hill looking down on a herd of cows. The young bull says to the old bull, "let's run down and ............... The old bull says, let's walk down and ...........

    Thanks for the link and I agree he was ahead of his time. Lot's of great quotes there to read...........scary actually. The quote I was looking for isn't listed there so I'm assuming the quote I read was incorrectly referenced as being one by Will Rogers, but it sure sounded like something he'd said.
