One evening an old man told his son about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, “Son, the battle is between a thorn and a Rose, inside us all. One is evil - it is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, oppression, hypocrisy, prejudice, guilt, lies, and ego. The other is good-it is joy, peace, love, serenity, honesty, humanity, kindness, faith, compassion,contentment, truth and hope.” The son asked his father. “Dad! Who wins?” The old man replied, “The one you feed, my dear son”.
