الإمام علي (عليه السَّلام):
لا تَفرَحْ بالغَناءِ والرَّخاءِ، ولا تَغتمَّ بالفقرِ والبلاءِ؛ فإنّ الذَّهبَ يُجَرَّبُ بالنّارِ، والمؤمنُ يُجَرَّبُ بالبلاءِ.
Imam Ali (as):
Do not rejoice at wealth and luxury, nor dread poverty and ordeal; for verily gold is tested by the fire and the believer is tested by an ordeal.

الإمام علي (عليه السَّلام):
المؤمنُ بِشْرُهُ في وجهِهِ، وحُزنُهُ في قلبِهِ، أوسَعُ شَي ءٍ صَدْرا، وأذَلُّ شَي ءٍ نَفْسا، يَكْرَهُ الرِّفْعةَ، ويَشْنَأُ السُّمْعةَ، طويلٌ غمُّهُ، بَعيدٌ هَمُّهُ، كثيرٌ صَمتُهُ، مَشغولٌ وقتُهُ، شَكورٌ، صَبورٌ، مَغمورٌ بفِكرَتِهِ، ضَنينٌ بخَلّتِهِ، سَهلُ الخَليقةِ، لَيِّنُ العَرِيكةِ، نَفسُهُ أصْلَبُ مِن الصَّلْدِ، وهُو أذَلُّ مِن العبدِ.
Imam Ali (as):
The believer is such that his joy is evident on his face whereas his sorrow is in his heart. His breast is at its widest [i.e. biggest heart] but his ego is at its lowest. He despises high rank and shuns reputation. His grief is long-lasting and his ambition is lofty. His silence is much and his time occupied. He is grateful, extremely patient, and immersed in deep thought. He is thrifty with his needs. He is good-natured and mild-tempered. His soul is firmer than steel whilst he [i.e. his ego] remains lower than a slave.
