Mevlana Jalal ad-Din Rumi

When someone calls me bad names, that makes me happy, but I
am troubled when someone praises me. Praise should be such that
afterwards no denial comes. Otherwise, that praise is hypocrisy.
Someone who is a hypocrit is worse that an unbeliever - Surely
the hypocrites will be in the lowest reach of the fire. {4: 145}
