Dhammapada - The Essential Teaching of The Buddha

Chapter XIX

258 A man is not learned because he talks much; he is who is patient, free from hatred and fear, he is called learned.
259 A man is not supporter of the law because he talks much; even if a man has learnt little, but sees the law bodily, he is supporter of the law, a man never neglects the law.
260 A man is not an elder because his head is grey; his age may be ripe, but he is called 'Old-in-vain.'
265 He who always quiets the evil, whether small or large, he is called Samana (a quiet man), because he has quieted all evil.
270 A man is not an elect (Ariya) because he injuries living creatures; because he has pity on all living creatures, therefore is a man called Ariya.
