Dhammapada 97 [Khuddaka Nikaya]

7 - Arahantavagga, The Arahat 
8 - Sariputtatthera Vatthu
Assaddho akatannu ca, sandhicchedo ca yo naro;
hatavakaso vantaso, sa ve uttamaporiso.
97. He who is not credulous, who has realized the Unconditioned (Nibbana), who has cut off the links of the round of rebirths, who has destroyed all consequences of good and bad deeds, who has discarded all craving, is indeed the noblest of all men (i.e., an arahat).
