"Any woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country.” – Margaret Thatcher

One of my favorite quotes EVER. She will be missed.

What a great woman! Her accomplishments have helped make a path for other women and she should long be praised for what she did in a time when the strenghts of women were not taken seriously.
