Inspirational Quotes from "Iron Lady"

As I was growing up, the name "Thatcher" was everywhere on the news and newspapers all the time for a long time. I knew she was a prime minister in England but I didn't know why the media paid so much attention to her. Now time passed and here's the movie for a bit of explanation. I was amazed by Meryl Streep's performance as usual as well as inspired by what this "Iron Lady" said in the movie. Despite the controversy or the judgment on what she's done politically, here are some words that made me think. 

“It used to be about trying to do something. Now it’s about trying to be someone.”

“What? What am I ‘bound to be feeling?’ People don’t think anymore. They feel. ‘How are you feeling? No, I don’t feel comfortable. I’m sorry, we as a group we’re feeling….’ One of the great problems of our age is that we are governed by people who care more about feelings than they do about thoughts and ideas. Thoughts and ideas. That interests me. Ask me what I’m thinking.”
