Ibnul Akwaa came to Rabee Bin Khuthaym and said: ”Refer me to one who is better than you; he (Rabee) said: The one whose speech is a reminder for himself; his silence is (so that he can) think and his destination (in the aakhirah is a reason) for reflection.  He (i.e. this type of person) is better than me.”

[Siyah A’laam An-Nubulaa: 4/261]
