Platitudes? Yes, there are platitudes. Platitudes are there because they are true.

Don't follow the crowd, let the crowd follow you.

Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you, you aren't.

It is not the creation of wealth that is wrong, but the love of money for its own sake.

Plan your work for today and every day. Then work your plan.

Pennies do not come from heaven. They have to be earned here on earth.

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

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

You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.

There is no such thing as society: there are individual men and women, and there are families.

If you want to cut your own throat, don’t come to me for a bandage.

When people are free to choose, they choose freedom.

It may be the cock that crows, but it is the hen that lays the eggs.

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

I owe nothing to women’s Lib.

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

I seem to smell the stench of appeasement in the air.

Nothing is more obstinate than a fashionable consensus.

Standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous; you get knocked down by the traffic from both sides.

Democratic nations must try to find ways to starve the terrorist and the hijacker of the oxygen of publicity on which they depend.

This lady is not for turning.

To me, consensus seems to be the process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values and policies. So it is something in which no one believes and to which no one objects.

You and I come by road or rail, but economists travel on infrastructure.
