I have read that this proverb is of Japanese origin (correct me if I'm wrong), but was unable to find its Japanese form. Thank you in advance.

    I don't think this is a translation request... That said, I think no well-known Japanese proverb means this. The internet is somehow full of strange "Japanese-origin" proverbs known to no Japanese people... Maybe this is a bit close? – naruto Oct 31 '20 at 0:55

    This might also be close. Although it doesn't translate to the sentence you provided, the core message seems similar. – Yosh Oct 31 '20 at 1:59
  • @Yosh あ、確かにそれっぽい! – naruto Oct 31 '20 at 3:09
