I want to merge two common sayings and use them as signature on scuba diving related web sites. I've come up with:
Plan the dive, dive the plan, and never forget that no plan survives the contact with the reality.
but I've trouble with the two "the" in bold. It seems to me that all four variations (with and without each "the") are correct, but I don't know what nuance each conveys. Which would be better and why?
