Examples of Margaret in a Sentence

  1. Ursula K. Le Guin:

    Public speaking is done in the public tongue, the national or tribal language; and the language of our tribe is the men's language. Of course women learn it. We're not dumb. If you can tell Margaret Thatcher from Ronald Reagan, or Indira Gandhi from General Somoza, by anything they say, tell me how. This is a man's world, so it talks a man's language.

  2. Helena Bonham Carter:

    The hardest thing about playing Margaret or anybody of the family is that ultimately so many people feel they know her. And everyone has an opinion, there were so many really close friends that were all too happy to talk about her and wanted to and really loved her and also wanted to show the side that was less known about her - that she was funny, that she was full of warmth and that she was very multicolored.

  3. Laila Shabir:

    The list of things that I couldn’t do, or shouldn’t do, was much longer than the things that I was allowed to do, so there was a lot of conflict inside me, because at home my parents were constantly telling me that I should dream big, and shoot for the stars. And they put all these incredible role models in front of me like Margaret Thatcher and Benazir Bhutto and I was supposed to be like them. But the minute I stepped out of my home, I was told the exact opposite. That I was dreaming too big, that if I wouldn’t stop looking at the sky I would stumble and fall on my face.
