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.”

Siyar A’laam An-Nubulaa: 4/261
