I needed to read this. I still have so much to learn.

"Pearls of Wisdom" by Iman Harith al Muhasibi
  1. Whenever a person increases in knowledge he increases in fear, and each time he increases in action he increases in humility.
  2. Seek the way of people whose knowledge increased their reverence, whose actions increased their heart-vision, and whose intellect increased their gnosis.
  3. When the knowledge of the intelligent person is sound and his certitude is firm he knows that nothing will save him from his Lord except truthfulness.
  4. He now has knowledge after ignorance, he is enriched after being impoverished, he has conviviality after being estranged, he is drawn near after being distant, and he rests after being exhausted.
  5. Help conquer the expectation of longevity by constantly remembering death.
