Anyone whose wisdom exceeds his good deeds, to what can he be compared? – to a tree whose branches are numerous but whose roots are few; then the wind comes and uproots it and turns it upside down. But one whose good deeds exceed his wisdom, to what can he be compared? – to a tree whose branches are few but whose roots are numerous; even if all the winds in the world were to come and blow against it, they could not budge it from its place.
(Rebbe Elazar ben Azariah)
