Ibn Umar (may Allaah be pleased with them) said that a man from Ansar1 asked:

“O Messenger of Allah, who is the soundest of people and most generous (in manners)?" The Prophet said: “The soundest of people and most generous in manners is the one who makes mention of death very often and prepares himself fully for it; Verily, these are the ones who are the soundest of people. They gained the honour in this world and the glory in the Hereafter.” 

[Ibn Majah no. 4259 with a weak chain of narrators. Ibn Abu Ad-Dunya also narrated it with a good chain of narrators; AI-Iraqi also narrated it in his book “Takhij Ahadith Al-lhya" (4/451)].
