Lewis acids are lone pair acceptors. Lewis bases are lone pair donors. Bronsted acids are H+ donors. Bronsted bases are H+ acceptors. Bronsted acids are most always the same as Lewis bases because they always accept a proton by donating a lone pair. Bronsted acids are a special kind of Lewis acid because the H+ part of the bronsted acid is the Lewis acid, not the whole compound, because only the H+ accepts a lone pair, not the whole Bronsted compound.
