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.
Margaret Thatcher (1925 -)

The cocks may crow, but it's the hen that lays the egg.
If you lead a country like Britain, a strong country, a country which has taken a lead in world affairs in good times and in bad, a country that is always reliable, then you have to have a touch of iron about you.
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.
I am extraordinarily patient provided I get my own way in the end.
No one would remember the Good Samaritan if he'd only had good intentions-he had money as well.
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.
