Could you kindly reference this narration?

Sufyan ibn ‘Uyaynah (rahimahullah) said: “I looked to the affairs of the Sahabah [i.e. their social conduct, business dealings, mannerisms, etc.]  and I looked to the affairs of ‘Abdullah ibn Al Mubarak (rahimahullah), but I didn’t see a virtue for them over him, except in their companionship of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and their battles with him.”
