Proverb and saying. Find differences

In his speech, the Russian people used to use proverbs and sayings, giving an emotional coloring and a “secret” meaning to their words. Proverbs about love, friendship, work, good and evil are very firmly established in our culture. Everyone from the school bench knows such expressions as “without effort you cannot catch a fish from a pond” or “disservice”. Each of us at least once used the phrase "money to the wind" or "brevity - the sister of talent."


Of course, no one thinks that this is a proverb, and that a saying. Over time, these boundaries are very blurred, and only a dictionary can bring clarity.

Proverb - an independent dictum, conveying meaning and wisdom. Often the words of the proverb are rhymed, very simple and concise. They are easily remembered and used as independent phrases. Wisdom and truth, proven by generations, are transmitted in proverbs: "It is better to see once than hear a hundred times."

A saying is a word or phrase that is part of a sentence. Although it can also be used as an independent expression, with a “shadow of understatement” at the end. Sayings are intended to emphasize the speaker's emotions, often they are ironic. Typically, a saying does not contain any instructive load and can be easily removed or replaced in a sentence. With them, the speech becomes more alive: "the cat cried, " "fooling around."
