….

“I looked at all friends, & did not find a better friend than SAFEGUARDING the TONGUE. I thought about all dresses, but did not find a better dress than PIETY.
I thought about all types of wealth, but did not find a better wealth than CONTENTMENT in LITTLE. I thought of all types of good deeds, but did not find a better deed than OFFERING GOOD ADVICE. I looked at all types of sustenance, but did not find a better sustenance than PATIENCE.”

[‘Umar ibn al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him)]
