Difference between Always and Forever

The English language words Always and Forever have similar but different meanings, as I shall explain, using British English examples.

Always means at all times, that is, it implies something is happening or is true no matter the time period you are talking about.

"It is always important to tell the truth."
"He was always taller than me."
"You are always late."
"I will always love you."

Forever means until the end of time, i.e. there is no time limit to the statement you are making.

"The Earth will orbit the Sun forever."
"I am going to be poor forever."
"I will love you forever."
