नात्र जीवेन्मृषावादी क्रूरो वा यदि वा शठः । नृशंसः कामवृत्तो वा मुनिरेष तथाविधः ॥

श्रीमद्वाल्मीकिरामायणे अरण्यकाण्डे एकादशस्सर्गः (९० श्लोक)

Highlighting the greatness of Agastya, ShriRaama spoke the above shloka to Lakshmana:

“One who does not follow the path of truth, one who commits un-necessary Himsa, and is cruel, one who cheats others, and one who acts as per his will, cannot live in this sacred ashram”.

In addition to describing the greatness of Agastya, ShriRaama is here listing the qualities one must NOT have.
