Kelly used the phrase "a form of movement" on page 87 in

Kelly, G. A. (1969). Man's construction of his alternatives. In B. Maher
(Ed.), Clinical psychology and personality: The selected papers of
George Kelly, (66-93). New York: Wiley.

I think he used "a form of motion" in the 1955 book, but I can't find it.
