“In politics, If you want anything said, ask a man. If you want anything done, ask a woman.”

“Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren't.”

“You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.”

“I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end.”

“If you set out to be liked, you will accomplish nothing.”

Margaret Thatcher was the daughter of a local businessman. Her family operated a grocery store when she was young. Her father was a member of the town's council, which is where she was introduced to politics. Margaret married Denis Thatcher in 1950. She put politics aside for a while as she focused more on studying law. A year later she had twins, Carol and Mark.
