'Then you should say what you mean,' the March Hare went on.
'I do,' Alice hastily replied; 'at least - at least I mean what I say - that's the same thing, you know.'
'Not the same thing a bit!' said the Hatter. 'You might just as well say that "I see what I eat" is the same thing as "I eat what I see"!'
'You might just as well say,' added the March Hare, 'that "I like what I get" is the same thing as "I get what I like"!'

("Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll)

Decir lo que se piensa y pensar lo que se dice no es lo mismo.

    He moved on as he spoke, and the Dormouse followed him: the March Hare moved into the Dormouse's place, and Alice rather unwillingly took the place of the March Hare. The Hatter was the only one who got any advantage from the change: and Alice was a good deal worse off than before, as the March Hare had just upset the milk-jug into his plate.
    Alice did not wish to offend the Dormouse again, so she began very cautiously: 'But I don't understand. Where did they draw the treacle from?'
    'You can draw water out of a water-well,' said the Hatter; 'so I should think you could draw treacle out of a treacle-well—eh, stupid?'
    'But they were in the well,' Alice said to the Dormouse, not choosing to notice this last remark.
    'Of course they were', said the Dormouse; '—well in.'
    This answer so confused poor Alice, that she let the Dormouse go on for some time without interrupting it.
    'They were learning to draw,' the Dormouse went on, yawning and rubbing its eyes, for it was getting very sleepy; 'and they drew all manner of things—everything that begins with an M—'
    'Why with an M?' said Alice.
    'Why not?' said the March Hare.
    Alice was silent.
    The Dormouse had closed its eyes by this time, and was going off into a doze; but, on being pinched by the Hatter, it woke up again with a little shriek, and went on: '—that begins with an M, such as mouse-traps, and the moon, and memory, and muchness— you know you say things are "much of a muchness"—did you ever see such a thing as a drawing of a muchness?'
    'Really, now you ask me,' said Alice, very much confused, 'I don't think—'
    'Then you shouldn't talk,' said the Hatter.
