3 Precious Gifts, and All of Them Were Given Only Through Sufferings. These are: The Torah, the Land of Israel and the World to Come.

Talmud – Mas. Berachoth 5a as translated by https://halakhah.com/pdf/zeraim/Berachoth.pdfIt has been taught: R. Simeon b. Yohai says: The Holy One, blessed be He, gave Israel three
precious gifts, and all of them were given only through sufferings. These are: The Torah, the Land of
Israel and the world to come. Whence do we know this of the Torah? — Because it is said: Happy is
the man whom Thou chastenest, o Lord, and teachest him out of Thy law.34 Whence of the Land of
Israel? — Because it is written: As a man chasteneth his son, so the Lord thy God chasteneth thee,35
and after that it is written: For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land.36 Whence of the
world to come? — Because it is written: For the commandment is a lamp, and the teaching is light,
and reproofs of sufferings are the way of life.37

gaonpicB”H Excerpts from An Anthology of the Gaon by Rabbi Moshe Zuriel {Tzuriel}

A Selection of sayings of the Vilna Gaon regarding beliefs, extracted from most of the writings of his disciples, of those faithful to him, and from some of his own writings.

Swiftness

The fact that a person puts off performing a mitzvah until the morrow leads to his not performing it at all, rather, as soon as he has the opportunity he should immediately perform it – to Proverbs 10/8, 14/23, 27/1

If not now, then when?” (Avot I) – the Sages did not say ”if not today”, for even on the same day, one should already now, perform the mitzvah.- to Proverbs 6:9

This Anthology of the sayings of the Vilna Gaon is Not Appropriate For Non-Jewish
Souls. Instead they should scroll up this page to the section A Light Unto the Nations which is more appropriate for a mixed audience.
