Difference Between High Aspiration and Self-importance In The Path of Seeking Knowledge

Imaam Muhammad Bin Saaleh Al-Uhaymeen [rahimahullaah] said: 

To have a high aspiration is that a person preserves his time, knows how to utilise it and does not waste time instead of utilising it in something beneficial. And when (another) person comes to him and he sees that sitting with such person will distract (or divert him from what is beneficial, befitting etc), he knows how to act (behave or react). As for pride (or having an excessive sense of one’s own importance), it is the behaviour of that one who belittles others and does not consider people to be anything else other than frogs. It may be that he would turn his face away whilst speaking to the people.
