Qualit Assurance vs Quality Control

A couple of days back I came across this article, which mentioned the terms Quality Assurance and Quality Control. Though the write up mentioned the terms it did not say anything about the difference between the two.

I googled and found out the following:
Quality Assurance aims to assure that the quality work and quality deliverables will be built before the work is done. QA activities are focused on the processes used to create the deliverable.

Quality Control aims to determine that quality work and quality deliverables did occur after work was done. QC activities are focused on the deliverable itself. Testing, Reviews and Inspection are few of the QC activities.
