 Āḷavaka Sutta

“One who is diligent and discerning gains wisdom by wanting to learn, having faith in the perfected ones, and the teaching for becoming extinguished. Being responsible, acting appropriately, and working hard you earn wealth. Truthfulness wins you a good reputation. You hold on to friends by giving. That’s how the departed do not grieve when passing from this world to the next. A faithful householder who has these four qualities does not grieve after passing away: truth, principle, steadfastness, and generosity. Go ahead, ask others as well, there are many ascetics and brahmins. See whether anything better is found than truth, self-control, generosity, and patience.”

Āḷavaka Sutta (SN 10.12)
