Mark Twain

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."

Chile and copper article quote:

Chile itself is in an enviable position, having squirrelled away $20-billion during the boom times to pay down foreign debt. This left it plenty of room for a $4-billion stimulus package when the economy went off the rails last fall. “It spent no money on bank bailouts,” Mr. McKeough notes.

The country's economy is forecast to shrink by a half of one per cent this year, compared with a 2.75-per-cent drop in gross domestic product for Canada and the United States, 4 per cent for Western Europe and 6 per cent for Japan, he added.
