Criterion: Ludwig van Beethoven!

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), German composer, fired his house cleaner, without thinking twice, when he learned that she had lied to him.

A friend who recommended this maid, tried to persuade the composer that he is making a big mistake and that that woman was fair and worthy, and that she did not lie to him with the intention to harm him.

-He who lies does not have a pure heart - Beethoven explained to his friend. -And he, who does not have a pure heart, cannot make a pure soup!
