How do you spell aphorisms?
That is the correct spelling of APHORISMS (clever, astute, or insightful observations, similar to proverbs but implying wit).
A short, witty statement expressing a single thought or observation. An epigram can also be paradoxical in nature. Epigrams are similar to aphorisms; however, most aphorisms express a general principle or truth about life in a sentence--epigrams can be a bit longer. Example: "What is a epigram? A dwarfish whole. Its body brevity, and wit its soul." -Samuel Taylor Coleridge
