Sixteen Quotes from Margaret Thatcher (1925-2013)

1.      “In politics, If you want anything said, ask a man. If you want anything done, ask a woman.”

2.  “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.”
3.      “Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren't.”
4.      “If you just set out to be liked, you will be prepared to compromise on anything at anytime, and would achieve nothing. ”
5.      “You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.”
6.      “Do you know that one of the great problems of our age is that we are governed by people who care more about feelings than they do about thoughts and ideas.”
7.      “Don't follow the crowd, let the crowd follow you.”
8.       “I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left."

9.      “When I'm out of politics I'm going to run a business, it'll be called rent-a-spine”
10.  “Europe was created by history. America was created by philosophy.”
11.   “There is no such thing as society. There are individual men and women, and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look to themselves first. It's our duty to look after ourselves and then, also to look after our neighbor. People have got the entitlements too much in mind, without the obligations. There's no such thing as entitlement, unless someone has first met an obligation.”

12.  “Socialists are happy until they run out of other people's money.”
13.  “Being democratic is not enough, a majority cannot turn what is wrong into right. In order to be considered truly free, countries must also have a deep love of liberty and an abiding respect for the rule of law.”
14.  “No-one would remember the Good Samaritan if he'd only had good intentions; he had money as well.”
15.  “To those waiting with bated breath for that favorite media catchphrase, the U-turn, I have only this to say, ‘You turn if you want; the lady’s not for turning."
16.  “There are significant differences between the American and European version of capitalism. The American traditionally emphasizes the need for limited government, light regulations, low taxes and maximum labor-market flexibility. Its success has been shown above all in the ability to create new jobs, in which it is consistently more successful than Europe.”

noticeably faster and more responsive than on the previous
iPad, which funnily enough.
