Witches vs. Wizards

What is the difference between witches and wizards.

I've read some on it, but I'm not sure it is right:
witches magick comes from nature and their magick usually deals with nature in some way.

wizards just study many different types of magick, and are focused on the knowledge of magick.

then warlocks are a witch, wizard, or any magical practitioner that strays from the path of their coven or practitioner group.

And witches, wizards, and warlocks can be guys and girls.

Is this right?

I would say that this is all pretty much correct. One thing though, warlock means 'oath-breaker' and many practitioners would take it as an great insult. Some people won't even say it in polite company, like a swear word. Just sayin'

I have heard that boys and girls can be witches. But I have also heard that boys can be called wizards. I myself prefer witch even though I'm a boy. As for the other stuff I don't think it's true.
I think that the name wizard is from the movies.

I was just wondering because I am working on a book and I wanted to make it at least somewhat accurate.

Witches are more about repitition and intuition and practice. They channel energy by invoking or evoking Gods and Nature, or manifesting they're own energy. They're more flexible but less versatile.

Wizards study much more and rely on ancient arcanic knowledge. They tend to be much more powerful but more ridged. They must do they're spells and rituals more accurately.

I would usually just label them as magickans. I would also label them if i needed to be more specific such as a druid or medium. It doesn't really matter (to me) if its a boy or a girl. I still put them under the labels.

Referring to a male witch as a warlock is indeed an insult.
Wizards? An old label! In the "dark ages" anyone dealing in Alchemy would be called a wizard. Any "happening" that people did not understand would be referred to as "wizardry". It has no meaning in witchcraft. To some, eye surgery is wizardry! To say nothing of a heart transplant! Even radio and television were thought by some to be wizardry. To me, the internet is quite "magical"; because I don't understand it. I am getting older (I refuse to get old!), I'm not up to all this modern technology. I'm only just getting used to a ball-point pen!

Bravo, Brysing..these younger folks could do with a bit (or a ton) more studying and less hand fed data. The historic importance of words and their development & applications (etymology) greatly influences how we perceive things.

Opinions are fine, but basing them on historical facts or truisms makes them powerful.

I agree with you also. Id just like to add that my definitions are more of a modern day deffinition between two similar groups. Not the historical terms for them.
