One could argue that many of us over indulge in eating, sleeping or talking too much. I was talking to someone and I was informed that Imam Ali a.s. said to "eat less, sleep less and talk less". I know Imam Ali a.s. said not to make your stomach a graveyard for animals but I am looking to find the statement of eating, sleeping and talking less.

Can someone find the saying, preferably from the nahjul balagha.

Thank you for your time.

many preacher talks more then a normal human being

momeen who travels more need to sleep more to avoid jet legs

momeen who is in physical work need to eat more to sustain his body....

so,what Imam Ali (a.s) means is,people who eat sleeps and talks more unnecessarily they shud avoid it....
