„The term "planning" is a new word for coherent and positive policy. The conception of strong Government policy in economic matters is, I believe, the very centre of the Conservative tradition. We have never been a party of laissez-faire.“

—  Rab Butler, About the Industrial Charter (Conservative Political Centre, 1947), p. 6.

„We who believe in strong defence are the true peace party.“

—  Margaret Thatcher British stateswoman and politician 1925 - 2013
Context: Peace is not bought cheaply. It cannot be won without cost. The cost of Britain's defence is the price we pay to prevent war. The money for our armed services is truly our “peace tax”. What a cruel irony it is that the word “peace” has been hijacked by those who seek one-sided disarmament. It's ironic because if only one side disarms, the other is far more tempted to aggression. Unilateralism makes war more likely. We who believe in strong defence are the true peace party.

„Strong families use the word "we" a lot, but "I" is never forgotten.“

—  Joyce Brothers Joyce Brothers 1927 - 2013
Context: Strong families use the word "we" a lot, but "I" is never forgotten. Family members know they have the freedom to go off on their own, even if the direction is one that "we" have never followed before. The family message is, "We're behind you, so you can be you."

We will clean up Wall Street. We will reform government.“
