Imam Hasan al-Basri رحمه الله said:

The Sunnah is – by Him besides whom none has the right to he worshipped – between those who exceed the limits and those who fall short.

So be patient upon it, may Allah have mercy upon you. For indeed, the {true} Ahlus-Sunnah were a minority from those who preceded and shall be a minority from those to come. They did not accompany the people who are excessive when they exceeded the limits, nor the people of innovation when they innovated.

Rather, they persevered upon the Sunnah, until they met their Lord.”

{Sunan ad-Darimi, Volume 1 pgs. 71-72}
