    "What is the difference between 'could' and 'would'?"

    If you could do something, you are able to.
    If you would do something, you intend to.

    Both words are usually associated with but.

    I could go to the match, but I have no money.

    I would go to the match, but I have to work.
    (You intend to go, but work prevents you.)
