We want to do it in an overall fiscally responsible way.
- Timothy Geithner

There is a basic lesson on financial crises that governments tend to wait too long,

but to small businesses with an idea and a plan for growing.
- Timothy Geithner

- Timothy Geithner

between our social insurance commitments and resources -
are not about monetary policy.
- Timothy Geithner

Although this crisis in some ways started in the United States,
it is a global crisis.

confidence that we're prepared to make a commitment
today to bring down our future deficits.
- Timothy Geithner

It is very important for people to understand that
the United States of America and no country around
the world can devalue its way to prosperity,

that didn't work out as you hoped.
Forgive yourself for any financial decisions
that didn't meet your expectations.
Release your regrets if you choose
the "wrong" spouse or the "wrong" career.
Today, choose love.
Choose to love yourself.
Choose to love your life.
Choose to love all the friends, family, co-workers,
acquaintances, and others who share your life.

I am like a newborn.
I have what I have today;
I have my fingers, my toes,
some people in my life,
some material and financial state.

perhaps a cherished memory,
but only a dream - nothing more.
I will make all decisions and actions based solely
on what I have today as a starting point."
