Some more Thatcherisms

“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.” 
“You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.” 
“If you just set out to be liked, you will be prepared to compromise on anything at anytime, and would achieve nothing. ” 
“Don't follow the crowd, let the crowd follow you.” “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.”
“Consensus: “The process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values, and policies in search of something in which no one believes, but to which no one objects; the process of avoiding the very issues that have to be solved, merely because you cannot get agreement on the way ahead. What great cause would have been fought and won under the banner: ‘I stand for consensus?”

“It used to be about trying to do something. Now it's about trying to be someone.” 
“Being democratic is not enough, a majority cannot turn what is wrong into right. In order to be considered truly free, countries must also have a deep love of liberty and an abiding respect for the rule of law.” 
“No-one would remember the Good Samaritan if he'd only had good intentions; he had money as well.” 
“Of course it's the same old story. Truth usually is the same old story.” 
“Socialists are happy until they run out of other people's money.”
