Note: The verb remove, in some of its application, is
synonymous with move, but not in all. Thus we do not
apply remove to a mere change of posture, without a
change of place or the seat of a thing. A man moves his
head when he turns it, or his finger when he bends it,
but he does not remove it. Remove usually or always
denotes a change of place in a body, but we never apply
it to a regular, continued course or motion. We never
say the wind or water, or a ship, removes at a certain
rate by the hour; but we say a ship was removed from
one place in a harbor to another. Move is a generic
term, including the sense of remove, which is more
generally applied to a change from one station or
permanent position, stand, or seat, to another station.
