Unrealised thoughts; unthoughtful acts - both fail.


The author of this proverb failed, because he or she didn't recognize the third class of failure: those who do not think and do not act.

This logical simplification lets us say it in fewer than six words, such as: "thought plus action prevent failure", or the imperative "think and act, or fail".
