Pearl of Wisdom
The greater the ordeal and test, the greater the reward and recompense. Do you not see that Allah, the Praiseworthy, tested our precursors from the time of Adam, peace be upon him, to the last generations in this world, with [the creation of] stones that neither harm nor benefit, nor do they see or hear, and He made from them His sacred House, which He made a standing place for people?! But Allah tries His servants with various ordeals, and obligates them with various forms of struggle, and tests them with various dreads, in order to eradicate vanity from their hearts and instil humility in their souls and that this may open the doors to His favour and the feasible means to His forgiveness.'
Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]

Ethics - Good Manners Melt a Hard Heart
In the Holy Qur'an
Repel (evil) with what is best, and lo! He between whom and you was enmity would be as if he were a warm friend (41:34)
In the Traditions
The Prophet said, "I have been sent to perfect the nobility of your character."
The Prophet said, "Good character melts sins as the sun melts ice, and bad character spoils an action just as vinegar spoils honey."
A man came to the Prophet saying "O Prophet of God, which prople have the most perfect faith?" "Those of them who have the best character", he replied.
Imam Ali said, "Cheerfulness is the basis of love, tolerance the burial of faults, conciliation the concealing of shortcomings, and there is no better relative than good character."
