    "The house absolutely glows with a new-found beauty. Tom is a genius in his ability to coordinate the work done to my home. In between many raindrops, he managed to get the painting done in a few days and have Mike, the roofer, and his crew tear off and replace the shingles and wood in two days time. And even though I'm on the west side, Tom was able to catch me before I left for work around 8:00 a.m. Your company has really boosted the resale value of my house. I plan to engage you again for interior work in the coming years. Thank you for a job well done!"

    "I grew up in the '30s with an unemployed father. He didn't riot. He got on his bike and looked for work, and he kept looking 'til he found it."

    Though the remark was made to a party supporter and not to someone who had lost their job, as popularly supposed, the hard-line employment secretary thereafter became Norman "On yer bike!" Tebbit, and "Get on your bike and look for work" became the Thatcher-era admonition to the unemployed.
