Goodnight Iron Lady

| April 8, 2013

I was sad to see that Margaret Thatcher has passed.

Margaret_ThatcherShe did lead a long and interesting life and just had a movie made about her life – albeit they tried to make it with a fringe of doubt concerning her sanity. But that’s Hollywood you know …

We sure could use a pair of leaders such as Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan today. What a team they made !

Margaret_Thatcher_Ronald_ReaganI would love to go into a more in depth entry about her – but I am having one of those very busy periods at the moment…

To me, she was a true statesman in the tradition of
Winston Churchill

There is one simple way I could no doubt honor her best…

… and that is in her own words:


margaret-thatcher-bw“Being powerful is like being a lady.
If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.”

Margaret_Thatcher_iron_lady“Disciplining yourself to do what you know is right and important, although difficult, is the highroad to pride, self-esteem, and personal satisfaction.”

“Any woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country.”

“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.”

“If you just set out to be liked, you would be prepared to compromise on anything at any time, and you would achieve nothing.”

Margaret Thatcher at Camp David near Thurmont, Maryland, America - 22 Dec 1984“There can be no liberty unless there is economic liberty.”

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

“It’s a funny old world.”
