I'm a bit confused on what the difference is between congruent and parallel. If a line is congruent (same) wouldn't that also make them parallel? like a square has all sides that are parallel but they are also congruent because they are all the same right... am I making any sense?

two lines can be both congruent and parallel ... but most the time this isn't the case
"_ ": congruent [I guess] but not parallel
" " both congruent and parallel
