The story that inspired the Band Name:

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 is joy, serenity, compassion, humility, benevolence, and truth. 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 is envy, greed, guilt, resentment, self pity, lies and false pride. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is helpless anger, for his anger will change nothing."

"The same fight is going on inside you as well and inside every other person." He added.

"Sometimes, it is hard to live with these two wolves inside of you, for both of them will try to dominate your spirit."

The boy looked intently into his Grandfather's eyes and asked, "Which one wins, Grandfather?"

The Grandfather smiled and quietly said, "The one you feed."
