Margaret Thatcher's bluntness, strong character, sharpness and sternness were reflected in the words that helped earn her the nickname the Iron Lady.

Some of my favourite Margaret Thatcher quotes:

    "If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman."  1965 speech

      "Pennies don’t fall from heaven — they have to be earned here on Earth."  November 1979 at a banquet

    "To those waiting with bated breath for that favourite media catchphrase, the U-turn, I have only one thing to say: You turn if you want to. The lady’s not for turning."  October 1980, Conservative Party conference

    "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."  September 1981 interview

    "Defeat? I do not recognize the meaning of the word."  April 1982, start of the Falklands War

    "I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end."  April 4, 1989, in the Observer
