Rabbi Elazar ben Azarya said: “When our learning exceeds our deeds we are like trees whose branches are many but whose roots are few: the wind comes and uproots them. … But when our deeds exceed our learning we are like trees whose branches are few but whose roots are many, so that even if all the winds of the world were to come and blow against them, they would be unable to move them.”
From “Chapters of the Fathers” in Gates of Prayer, Chaim Stern, ed. (New York: Central Conference of American Rabbis, 1975), 22.
