Imam al-Ghazali·

Al-Fudayl said: “If you can afford not to be known then do so. What harm shall ever come to you from being unknown? Why should you care if you are not praised? And why should you care if you are criticised by people while being praised by Allah, exalted is He?” And Ibrahim ibn Adham said: “He who loves status is not being truthful with Allah.”

[Ihya, Book 28]
