SHE'S A (iron) LADY...

''If you want something said, ask a man... if you want something done, ask a woman.''

''I'm extraordinary patient... provided I get my own way at the end.''

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

''Nobody would remember the Good Samaritan if he only had good intentions. He had money as well.''

''You know, if you just set out to be liked, you would be prepared to compromise on anything, wouldn't you, at any time ? And you would achieve nothing!''

''I don't mind how much my ministers talk, as long as they do what I say.''

''I think we have gone through a period when too many people & children have been given to understand ''I have a problem, it is the Government's job to cope with it'' or ''I have a problem, I will go and get a grant & cope with it !'' or ''I am homeless, the Government must house me !'' and so they are casting their problems on society... and who is society ? There is no such thing ! There are individual men & women & there are families. No Government can do any-thing, except through people... & people must look to themselves first.''

''I'm not immortal, but I got a lot left in me yet.'' September 9,1990 when she stepped out of office.
