Doubtless, everyone knows these quotations. They do not date from yesterday.
But since they were new to me, perhaps they will be new to someone else.
They are all by Margaret Thatcher; they address diverse topics; they are clear, concise, cogent, and very high concept. They will brighten your day with wisdom.
They do not require commentary:
1. Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren't.
2. Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It’s not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it’s when you’ve had everything to do, and you’ve done it.
3. If my critics saw me walking over the Thames they would say it was because I couldn’t swim.
