I think "The goal is in the way" would carry a similar ironic message in English, provided the reader has some inkling of what The Way means.

This is the english version of Der Weg ist das Ziel. Litterally translated The way is the goal.

In german it can be turned around: Das Ziel ist im Weg.. This means the goal is blocking to progress.

Is there a similar playing with words and meanings possible in english?
