Proverbs are seen to result from wise experiences presented as wisdom in a subtle way. The words of proverbs and related sayings were generally provided by the old and wise people from different cultures. In most cases they offered advice and warnings about everyday life.
A proverb is different from an idiom because a proverb is a sentence while an idiom is a
phrase or a clause. Hence idioms can undergo some change to fit into a sentence, while a
proverb cannot be changed at all.
