Dhammapada 95 [Khuddaka Nikaya]

7 - Arahantavagga, The Arahat
6 - Sariputtatthera Vatthu
Pathavisamo no virujjhati,
indakhilupamo tadi subbato;
rahadova apetakaddamo,
samsara na bhavanti tadino.

95: Like the earth, the arahat is patient and is not provoked to respond in anger; like the door-post he is firm; he is unperturbed by the ups and downs of life; he is serene and pure like a lake free from mud. For such an arahat there will be no more rebirth.
