"The one occasion on which people generally appreciate that the highest priority is goodness is a funeral. Every eulogist knows that no one wishes to hear a description of the deceased's luxurious swimming pool and tennis court, or how he kept his car so well polished that you could see your reflection in it. What matters most when we depart this world is the legacy of goodness that we leave behind. Were we loyal friends and fair employers? Did we extend ourselves when others needed help? Were we loving and kind to our spouse? Did we leave our children with a feeling of being loved and appreciated? Did we inspire them to want to do good? " - Rabbi Joseph Telushkin
