Maxim, proverb, gnome, aphorism, apothegm, sententiaall mean essentially the same thing: a short, easily remembered expression of a basic principle, general truth, or rule of conduct. Think of a maxim as a nugget of wisdomor at least of apparent wisdom.

You can philosophical define word 'maxim' as the material rule or principle used to guide a person in a particular situation about what to do (e.g., 'I should never tell a lie'). It thus provides a kind of bridge between a persons inner disposition and outer actions.
