From the Dhammapada's Yamakavagga: Pairs (http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .than.html
If he recites many teachings, but
— heedless man —
doesn't do what they say,
like a cowherd counting the cattle of
he has no share in the contemplative life.
If he recites next to nothing
but follows the Dhamma
in line with the Dhamma;
his mind well-released,
either here or hereafter:
he has his share in the contemplative life.
