    There are people who worship Allah to gain His Favors,
    this is the worship of traders;

    while there are some who worship Him to keep themselves free from His Wrath,
    this is the worship of slaves;

    a few who obey Him out' of their sense of gratitude and obligations
    this is the worship of free and noble men.

    One who says unpleasant things about others,
    will himself quickly become a target of their scandal.

    Whenever a tradition of the Holy Prophet is related to you, scrutinize it,
    do not be satisfied with mere verbatim repetition of the same because there are many people who repeat the words containing knowledge but only few ponder over them and try to fully grasp the meaning they convey.

    4. Submission to Allah's Will is the best companion;

    wisdom is the noblest heritage
    theoretical and practical knowledge are the best signs of distinction;
    deep thinking will present the clearest picture of every problem.

    O son of Adam, when you see that your Lord, the Glorified, bestows His Favors on you while you disobey Him,
    you should fear Him (take warning that His Wrath may not turn those very blessings into misfortunes).

    There are four causes of infidelity and loss of belief in Allah:
    hankering after whims,
    a passion to dispute every argument,
    deviation from truth;
    and dissension,
    because whoever hankers after whims does not incline towards truth; whoever keeps on disputing every argument on account of his ignorance, will always remain blind to truth, whoever deviates from truth because of ignorance, will always take good for evil and evil for good and he will always remain intoxicated with misguidance.
    And whoever makes a breach (with Allah and His Messenger) his path becomes difficult, his affairs will become complicated and his way to salvation will be uncertain.
    Similarly, doubt has also four aspects absurd reasoning fear;
    vacillation and hesitation;
    and unreasonable surrender to infidelity,
    because one who has accustomed himself to unreasonable and absurd discussions will never see the Light of Truth and will always live in the darkness of ignorance.
    One who is afraid to face facts (of life, death and the life after death) will always turn away from ultimate reality,
    one who allows doubts and uncertainties to vacillate him will always be under the control of Satan and one who surrenders himself to infidelity accepts damnation in both the worlds.

    it is good thing to know the opinion of others.
    I would not be surprise if any comes up with similar to what you pasted
    but to the negative side.

    And above all
    (18:1) All praise is for Allah, Who has sent down this Book to His Servant, and assigned nothing crooked to it.

    The sin which makes you sad and repentant
    is more liked by Allah
    than the good deed which turns you arrogant.

    I wonder at a man who loses hope of salvation when the door of repentance is open for him.

    When a community is composed of honest,
    sober and virtuous people,
    your forming a bad opinion about anyone of its members, when nothing wicked has been seen of him,
    is a great injustice to him.
    On the contrary in a corrupt society to form good opinion of anyone of them and to trust him is to harm yourself.

    If you are greeted then return the greetings more warmly.
    If you are favoured,
    then repay the obligation manifold;
    but he who takes the initiative will always excel in merit
