BABYLONIAN TALMUD, KIDDUSHIN 40B
Rabbi Tarfon and some elders were reclining in an upper chamber in the house of Nitza in Lod when this question came up:
Which is greater, study or action?
Rabbi Tarfon spoke up and said: Action is greater.
Rabbi Akiva spoke up and said: Study is greater.
The others then spoke up and said: Study is greater because it leads to action.
תלמוד בבלי, קדושין מ
וכבר היה רבי טרפון וזקנים מסובין בעלית בית נתזה בלוד, נשאלה שאילה זו בפניהם: תלמוד גדול או מעשה גדול? נענה רבי טרפון ואמר: מעשה גדול, נענה ר”ע ואמר: תלמוד גדול, נענו כולם ואמרו: תלמוד גדול, שהתלמוד מביא לידי מעשה
