Japanese Proverb (HELP!) in kana

Postby AdmiralAK » June 6th, 2007 10:25 pm

Hello all!
I came across a japanese proverb that I really like: "Vision without action is a dream. Action without vision is a nightmare."

Can someone provide me with the kanji (and kana) versions? :-)

Domo Arigato!!! :D

I don't think it's actually Japanese, but this page has:
Vision without action is daydream. Action without vision is nightmare.
行動のともなわないビジョンは、ただの白日夢。ビジョンのない行動は、ただの悪夢。

Grand total of two Google hits. Probably someone just made it up and said it was Japanese to make it sound "deep".
