News says she was Britain’s greatest post-war prime minister.  I knew her as the Iron Lady.  Here are some words that reminds us of her.

“Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It’s not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it’s a day you’ve had everything to do and you’ve done it.”

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

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

“Watch your thoughts for they become words.
Watch your words for they become actions.
Watch your actions for they become habits.
Watch your habits for they become your character.
And watch your character for it becomes your destiny.
What we think, we become.
My father always said that… and I think I am fine.”
