Porfirio Diaz Quote

Poor Mexico, so far from God and so close to the United States.

In Spanish: Pobre México! Tan lejos de Dios y tan cerca de los Estados Unidos

According to 'The Quote Verifier' by Ralph Keyes, "even Díaz biographer Paul Garner can only say the quotation is attributed to him." According to the same book, the earliest attribution to Díaz can be found in a 1940 magazine article translated from Mexico's Hoy.
