It’s a bit simplistic since the quote comes from a shoujo anime but it gets the point across so I think it’s worth remembering.

One of the best lessons that you can teach your children is compassion for their fellows.

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.

If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
