Russian term or phrase:Balzac quote: Чтобы дойти до цели, нужно прежде всего идти
This is a quote from Honore de Balzac which I cannot find anywhere in English. If anyone even has the original French quotation that might be helpful because it would help me find an English translation.
Anyway, since I can't find a translation I was looking for input on how to word this. So far the phrases I've come up with are clunky like "In order to reach your goals, you must first get up." It's just not working!
