How about:

"The theory is only as good as the people who [try to] apply them."

Theory is based on idealistic parameters.  In an perfect world, it's
100% accurate.  In the real world, it's the basis for applying practical
solutions without having to prune the entire solution space.  That's the
difference between a University computer science student and a local
college programmer graduate.
