Rising above the praises of men…

No one therefore has a single, i.e. a pure heart, except the man who rises above the praises of men; and when he lives well, looks at Him only, and strives to please Him who is the only Searcher of the conscience.

Augustine, Sermon on the Mount, Nicene and Post Nicene Fathers, vol. 6
