On judgment day...

"On the day of judgment we will not be asked what we have read, 
but what we have done; 
neither will we be asked how well we have spoken, 
but how devoutly we have lived.  
Where are all the Doctors and learned people who were famous in their day?  
They are now supplanted by others.  
In their lifetime they enjoyed fame, but now they are scarcely remembered."

(The Imitation of Christ, Book OneChapter Three)
