Difference between idioms and proverbs

An idiom is a regularly used form of words, particular in some way - either to an individual or a group. it can form a style of communication.

A proverb is a saying that makes a truth or piece of wisdom easier to remember e.g. a stitch in time saves nine (minor preventative action is less trouble than disaster-recovery) or 'many a true word spoken in jest' (take care as to what you say, it can reveal more than you may wish).
