In our day to day life, we often use Idioms and proverbs at different situations. An idiom is simply a phrase which has a meaning but that cannot be understood by connecting the meanings of individual words. Proverb is a general fact which is expressed as a belief and generally believed to be true. Proverbs may seem similar to Idioms because of the fact that meaning of a proverb can be understood in a different way when considered the meaning of words individually. But the literal meaning of an idiom is not understood if you have known or learned about them before.
