The lightning bug and the lightning

We missed the great man's birthday last month,* but this quote is always in season:

The difference between the almost-right word & the right word is really a large matter -- it's the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.

Or between the aircraft and the aircraft carrier.

 * Celebrated by The Ridger with a particularly apt Huck passage.
