What is the difference between Buddhas and Bodhisattvas?

Buddhas are fully enlightened and have entered nirvana while Bodhisattvas are practising Buddhas who are very close to full enlightenment.  According to some Mahayana scriptures, it is also believed that Bodhisattvas are deliberately retaining a little karmic force in their consciousness so that they will reincarnate back into the human world to carry out their infinite compassionate deeds in liberating people or they are actually Buddhas but manifest themselves to us in this saha world as Bodhisattvas only.
