Reb Dovid'l

Rabbi Itzikl's son by his third wife Chana Sima, Reb Dovidl, succeeded his father as Skverer Rebbe. He was known to be ascetic and exceedingly reticent. He once said, "Men shvagt un men shvagt, dernoch riet men abisl un men shvagt vater" ("We keep silent and we keep silent; then we rest a bit, and go on keeping silent").

Compare to the story of the wise man of Chelm who, when asked whether he ever got tired of being quite, replied "Yes. And then I rest by not talking."
