Noble Prize-winning author Ernest Hemingway was noted for his brilliant use of spare, tight yet insightful prose. This quotation was praised later by actress Marlene Dietrich for how it says so much with so few words. She said,  “In those five words, he gave me a whole philosophy.”

“Never confuse movement with action.”

Ernest Hemingway
