All Arrhenius acids are also Bronsted acids but all Arrhenius Bases are not Bronsted Bases.Why ?

Arrhenius concept:

An acid is substance which can give H+.

A base is a substance which gives OH-.

Bronsted-Lowry concept:

An acid is a substance which an donate proton.

A base is a substance which can accepts a proton.

Thus, the definition for acid is same as per both concepts but it differs for base.
