Famous quotes containing the words margaret thatcher and/or thatcher:

    I’ll stay until I’m tired of it. So long as Britain needs me, I shall never be tired of it.
    Margaret Thatcher (b. 1925)

    Public speaking is done in the public tongue, the national or tribal language; and the language of our tribe is the men’s language. Of course women learn it. We’re not dumb. If you can tell Margaret Thatcher from Ronald Reagan, or Indira Gandhi from General Somoza, by anything they say, tell me how. This is a man’s world, so it talks a man’s language.
    Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)
