Learning brings to doing Mitzvos.

 

"Learning is great, because learning leads to doing. (Kiddushin 40B) The Rif explains two lessons in this statement:
1) The person who acts may never come to learn, but learning will lead a person to action. Two Mitzvos are better than one.
2) A person should not stop learning in order to do good deeds, but the more he learns, the more he will realize the value of Mitzvos. He will then look for ways to do Mitzvos when he is not learning.
