Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, whose resistance to tyranny helped bring the Soviet fall, died Monday. Following are some inspiring quotes:

"I am in politics because of the conflict between good and evil, and I believe that in the end good will triumph."

~


'If you just set out to be liked, you would be prepared to compromise on anything at any time and you would achieve nothing.'

~


"If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman."

~


'The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money. '

~


"I cannot imagine how any diplomat, or any dramatist, could improve on (Ronald Reagan's) words to Mikhail Gorbachev at the Geneva summit: 'Let me tell you why it is we distrust you.' Those words are candid and tough and they cannot have been easy to hear. But they are also a clear invitation to a new beginning and a new relationship that would be rooted in trust."

So with that we say adieu, fair lady, adieu. You were one of America's greatest allies, a friend, but greater and higher, a staunch defender of liberty.
