Came across one of my favorite writings from Sufi poet Abu Sa’eed (excerpt from Nobody, son of nobody):

Be humble. Only fools take pride in their station here, trapped in a cage of dust, moisture, heat and air. No need to complain of calamities, this illusion of a life lasts but a moment […]. Those with no sense of honor and dignity are best avoided. Those who change colors constantly are best forgotten. The best way to be with those bereft of the Beloved’s qualities, is to forget them in the joy of silence in one’s corner of solitude.
