There should be both a feeling of being in need of people and independence from them in your heart. Your need for them should be in your speaking softly to them and being cheerful (with good temper). Your independence of them should be in your pure honor and preserved dignity.

Imam Ali (a), Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 72, p. 112.
