The believer is such that his joy is evident on his face

Imam Ali (A.S.)‏

الْمُؤْمِنُ بِشْرُهُ فِي وَجْهِهِ وَ حُزْنُهُ فِي قَلْبِهِ أَوْسَعُ شَيْ‌ءٍ صَدْراً وَ أَذَلُّ شَيْ‌ءٍ نَفْساً يَكْرَهُ الرِّفْعَةَ وَ يَشْنَأُ السُّمْعَةَ ... نَفْسُهُ أَصْلَبُ مِنَ الصَّلْدِ وَ هُوَ أَذَلُّ مِنَ الْعَبْدِ.

The believer is such that his joy is evident on his face even while there is sorrow is in his heart. His breast is at its widest [i.e. his heart is at its biggest] even while his ego is at its lowest. He despises high rank and shuns reputation....His soul is firmer than steel while he [i.e. his ego] remains lower than a slave.

Nahj al-Balagha, Hadith 333
