I am certain of receiving a share in the World-to-Come. You wonder why? When I'll be facing the Heavenly Tribunal they'll ask me, "Did you devote your days to the study of Torah?" I'll answer "No." Then, they will ask me, "Did you pray properly?" Again I'll answer "No." And when they will ask me the third question, "Did you perform acts of kindness as you should have?" I'll give them the same reply. Then the Holy One Blessed is He will pronounce the sentence, "Elimelech, you told the truth. And for telling the truth you deserve a place in the World-to-Come. "

(Rebbe Elimelech of Lizensk)
