Imaam adh-Dhahabi said, “So may Allaah have mercy on a man who devotes himself to his own situation, restricts his tongue, dedicates himself to reciting his Quraan, cries over his time, constantly ponders over the two Sahihs, and worships Allaah before the appointed time overtakes him unawares—O Allaah, so grant success and have mercy.”
Tadhkiratul-Huffaadh, vol. 2, p. 86.

It was said to Qais, may Allaah have mercy on him, “Won’t you speak?” So he replied, “My tongue is a beast of prey/a lion, I fear, if I let it go, that it will bite/slaughter me.”
