The Talmud tells us that “saying little and doing much” is the hallmark of righteousness, while “saying much and doing little” is a sign of someone who lacks all virtue. A person of integrity will never say anything that isn’t true, and will also not commit to something that they may not be able to deliver on. On the other hand, those for whom integrity is not an important consideration will promise a lot, even if they are unable to deliver. Having integrity means living in accordance with our beliefs, carrying out the things we talk about, being the same person in public as we are in private. There is no disconnect. Say little and do much. A simple ethic. An unfailing formula for human greatness.
