Pages vs Posts – What is the difference between a Page and a Post in WordPress?

One question I am often asked by beginner users of WordPress is What is the difference between a Page and a Post.

A post is like a newspaper.  They have a date, and appear (usually) with the latest one first.  They should be used for information that might become outdated.

A page, however, is for information that is needed forever, more like a good book.
