Margaret Thatcher, the first woman to ever serve as Britain’s Prime Minister left a powerful imprint on the world. Here are some of her more famous quotes.

“Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They always run out of other people’s money. It’s quite a characteristic of them.”

“Pennies don’t fall from heaven; they have to be earned here on earth.”

“No one would remember the Good Samaritan if he’d only had good intentions; he had money as well.”

“I came to office with one deliberate intent: to change Britain from a dependent to a self-reliant society – from a give-it-to-me to a do-it-yourself nation. A get-up-and-go, instead of a sit-back-and-wait-for-it Britain.”

“My policies are based not on some economics theory, but on things I and millions like me were brought up with: an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay; live within your means; put by a nest egg for a rainy day; pay your bills on time; support the police.”

“Defeat-I do not recognize the meaning of the word!”

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

“Disciplining yourself to do what you know is right and important, although difficult, is the highroad to pride, self-esteem, and personal satisfaction.”

“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.”

“What is success? I think it is a mixture of having a flair for the thing that you are doing; knowing that it is not enough, that you have got to have hard work and a certain sense of purpose.”

“It is not the creation of wealth that is wrong, but the love of money for its own sake.”

“Plan your work for today and every day, then work your plan.”
