Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren't.
Margaret Thatcher (1925 -)

One of the things being in politics has taught me is that men are not a reasoned or reasonable sex.
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.
I do not know anyone who has got to the top without hard work. That is the recipe. It will not always get you to the top, but should get you pretty near.
To wear your heart on your sleeve isn't a very good plan; you should wear it inside, where it functions best.

Consensus is the negation of leadership.
Standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous; you get knocked down by traffic from both sides.
Most women defend themselves. It is the female of the species-it is the tigress and lioness in you-which tends to defend when attacked.
You don't tell deliberate lies, but sometimes you have to be evasive.
I usually make up my mind about a man in ten seconds, and I very rarely change it.
