Let's take it one step further:

Never confuse motion with action, or action with progress. **

("The trouble with Internet quotations is that you can't always depend on their accuracy." -- Abraham Lincoln)

**Edit: A brief Googlesearch says I could/should have attributed this to "Benjamin Hemingway"...

Ha!
Better half-said than left unsaid whereas the f-word might snigger forever in schoolboys raunchy little minds.
Don't push me. I'll say the p-word, the c-word, and words that have never been said if properly challenged.
