    Well they both involve a coil of wire in a magnetic field.

    Motor: The current in the coil causes it to move, because it's in a magnetic field
    - current creates motion

    Generator: Spinning a coil in a magnetic field creates an emf in the coil, producing a current.
    - motion creates current
