The Iron Lady Speaketh!

So very relevant to our current predicament in USA- and some things for the Lindsey Grahams of the world too, like no compromise on conservative principles:

There can be no liberty unless there is economic liberty.

A world without nuclear weapons would be less stable and more dangerous for all of us.

I seem to smell the stench of appeasement in the air.

Standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous; you get knocked down by the traffic from both sides.

Nothing is more obstinate than a fashionable consensus.

There are still people in my party who believe in consensus politics. I regard them as Quislings, as traitors... I mean it.

To me, consensus seems to be the process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values and policies. So it is something in which no one believes and to which no one objects.

To cure the British disease with socialism was like trying to cure leukaemia with leeches.

Pennies do not come from heaven. They have to be earned here on earth.

People think that at the top there isn't much room. They tend to think of it as an Everest. My message is that there is tons of room at the top.

The trouble with socialism is, eventually you run out of other people's money.

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.

Power is like being a lady... if you have to tell people you are, you aren't.

I owe nothing to Women's Lib.

God Bless You  Margaret Thatcher...
