Abu Amr said:

Adhere to the path of the Salaf, even if the people rejected you, and beware of the views of men even if they decorated it to you with [their] speech, since the matter will become clear while you are upon the Straight Path.


[1] Siyar A’laam Al-Nubalaa 7/120

سمعت الاوزاعي يقول: عليك بآثار من سلف، وإن رفضك الناس، وإياك وآراء الرجال، وإن زخرفوه لك بالقول، فإن الامر ينجلي وأنت على طريق مستقيم.ـ
