Dan Cirucci's Favorite Thatcher Quotes

From: Dan Cirucci

The inimitable Margaret Thatcher was almost always eminently quotable.
Here are what we consider to be her top ten quotes:

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

9. “Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren't.”

8. “Consensus: The process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values, and policies in search of something in which no one believes, but to which no one objects; the process of avoiding the very issues that have to be solved, merely because you cannot get agreement on the way ahead. What great cause would have been fought and won under the banner: ‘I stand for consensus?”

7. “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.”

6. “You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.”

5. "The lady's not for turning."

4. "If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman."

3. "It is not the creation of wealth that is wrong, but the love of money for its own sake."

2. "If my critics saw me walking over the Thames they would say it was because I couldn't swim."

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