Malik ibn Dinar (rahimahullaah) said:
'Since I have known (the reality of) people, I have not taken delight in their praise nor have I hated their criticism.' It was said to him, 'Why is that?' He said, 'The one who praises from amongst them is excessive & the critic from amongst them exaggerates!'
Tarikh Dimishq (59/307)
