EDITORIALS/Good trumps evil
Wednesday, April 10, 2013 1:00 PM
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.
