    A phrase may consist of just a few words and may not be a complete sentence.

    "Onward and upward" is a phrase but not a complete sentence.

    "We must continue onward and upward" is a complete sentence.

    Nicely explained. A phrase is not a complete sentence and without subject and predicate, while sentence is complete with both subject and predicate.
