    Margaret Thatcher: "Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become...habits. Watch your habits, for they become your character. And watch your character, for it becomes your destiny! What we think we become. My father always said that, and I think I am fine."

    Words to live by, to be sure. Thatcher's thoughts, words and actions inspired some, and enraged others.
