Quotes of the Day for 13 October 2000 – Margaret Thatcher

Baroness Margaret Hilda Roberts Thatcher, England's first woman Prime Minister, was born on this day in 1925. She also held that office longer than any other in this century, which gave her the chance to leave a lot of great quotes, of which I've chosen a very few.

Van's signature

The quotes:

Europe was created by history. America was created by philosophy.

If you go into what I call a bubble boom, every bubble bursts.

No one would remember the Good Samaritan if he'd only had good intentions. He had money as well.

To wear your heart on your sleeve isn't a very good plan; you should wear it inside, where it functions best.

I'm extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end.
     All from Margaret Thatcher
