„I think has been invaluable to me in terms of a moral compass – of some idea of what’s acceptable and what is not acceptable.“

—  Alex Salmond
Context: I do have a strong faith and always have had, I’m not a regular churchgoer now but I’m in church a lot – to do readings, to attend events and so on. I had a strong church upbringing which I think has been invaluable to me in terms of a moral compass – of some idea of what’s acceptable and what is not acceptable. I have a Presbyterian nature in that I like its ideas of individual responsibility and democracy. I’m naturally suspicious of people who wear religion heavily on their sleeves – that’s just not me and my style.

„I want to see a Scotland that is nuclear free. A Scotland that uses its natural resources and know-how to deliver clean and secure energy supplies. And a Scotland that develops new clean energy technologies that can be exported and used throughout the world.“

—  Alex Salmond
Strategic objectives of new Government (May 23, 2007), Context: We must take the lead in the green energy revolution. This country has played a hugely influential role in the development of green technology but we need to take that to another level. I want Scotland to become the pre-eminent location for clean energy research and development in Europe. Becoming a world leader in the development of renewable technology provides a happy marriage of economic advantage and meeting the fundamental challenges of climate change head on. We have the natural resources, the know-how and the skills for Scotland to become the green energy capital of Europe.... This country - our country - in a unique position to exploit all of these technologies.... I want to see a Scotland that is nuclear free. A Scotland that uses its natural resources and know-how to deliver clean and secure energy supplies. And a Scotland that develops new clean energy technologies that can be exported and used throughout the world.

„We're a country with a balance of opinion. We are not a divided country.“

—  Alex Salmond
Context: We're a country with a balance of opinion. We are not a divided country. but we're debating independence in an entirely peaceful fashion. King Alex: The Man Behind Scotland's Independence Movement http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/scottish-independence-has-been-a-lifelong-goal-for-alex-salmond-a-991683.html, .

„We unite behind a declaration of self-evident truth.“

—  Alex Salmond
Context: We unite behind a declaration of self-evident truth. The people who live in Scotland are best placed to make the decisions that affect Scotland. We want a Scotland that's greener, that's fairer and more prosperous. We realise that the power of an independent Scotland is necessary to achieve these great ends... By the time we enter the referendum campaign in autumn 2014, our intention is to have one million Scots who have signed the independence for Scotland declaration. Friends, if we achieve that, then we shall win an independent Scotland. BBC News, ' Scottish independence: One million Scots urged to sign 'yes' declaration http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-18162832' (25 May 2012).

„It is time to celebrate diversity and distinctiveness.“

—  Alex Salmond
Cardinal Winning Lecture (February 2, 2008), Context: It is time to celebrate diversity and distinctiveness. And to openly welcome the contribution that faith based education can make to Scottish education.

„Others have a different view. I respect that.“

—  Alex Salmond
Principles and Priorities : Programme for Government (September 5, 2007), Context: This Government believes in an independent Scotland precisely because it is our view that the transformation of our country in each and every of those policy areas can best be achieved through that normal, independent status.... Others have a different view. I respect that.

„The whole point in having a religion and faith is that you campaign for what you believe, not just for what you think is achievable.“

—  Alex Salmond
Context: I’m not sure we should ask the Church to be pragmatic. Politicians have to be – that’s part of the balancing of the public interest – but I don’t think that’s the job of the Church. The whole point in having a religion and faith is that you campaign for what you believe, not just for what you think is achievable. In an interview with .

„The future of the western economies in the coming decades will rest on their capacity to fuel economic growth whilst reducing our impact on the planet.“

—  Alex Salmond
Strategic objectives of new Government (May 23, 2007), Context: The future of the western economies in the coming decades will rest on their capacity to fuel economic growth whilst reducing our impact on the planet. Scotland is not just part of that - in truth we are well placed to be a leader. Scotland sits at the heart of one of the wealthiest parts of our planet.

„To free education for all. … We seek to build an education system that is open to all.“

—  Alex Salmond
Cardinal Winning Lecture (February 2, 2008), Context: The foundation of Scotland's success - our great intellectual, social and economic flourishing - was our commitment to education. To free education for all.... We seek to build an education system that is open to all. A system that will not just benefit our economy - but will help to strengthen Scotland's entire civic and intellectual life. That is why we place such strong emphasis on ethics and values.

„Words that help describe the values for our whole democracy: justice, wisdom, integrity and compassion.“

—  Alex Salmond
Cardinal Winning Lecture (February 2, 2008), Context: When we consider the ideals - the values - that we should foster in Scotland's young people, we can think of the words inscribed on the mace of the Scottish Parliament. Words that help describe the values for our whole democracy: justice, wisdom, integrity and compassion. Values that are - and have always been - at the heart of Catholic education in Scotland.

„The public interest is not served by parties incapable of defining their driving principles and standing their ground. Politics is either about the competition of ideas or it is about nothing.“

—  Alex Salmond
Strategic objectives of new Government (May 23, 2007), Context: I do not favour the mushy ground of false consensus. The public interest is not served by parties incapable of defining their driving principles and standing their ground. Politics is either about the competition of ideas or it is about nothing. But just as the public interest is served by that competition, so it is ultimately better served by thoughtful reflection rather just than knee-jerk reaction.

„Our progressive nationalism goes hand-in-hand with a commitment to internationalism.“

—  Alex Salmond
Context: Membership of a supranational economic trading organisation like the EC is the antithesis of 'separation', the meaningless insult directed at the SNP by unionist parties. Membership involves obligations which cede national sovereignty for mutual benefit. Co-operation with our European partners in the functional areas--economic, trading, technical and social policies--offers an independent Scotland the chance to play a reforming part in creating a Europe of equal nations. The EC is by no means perfect and the idea of a centralised European super-state is anathema. Our view of Europe is confederal--each state proud of its national identity but willing to work and co-operate in a powerful partnership... Every member of the SNP signs a commitment to internationalism when they receive their membership card. Our progressive nationalism goes hand-in-hand with a commitment to internationalism. 'Nationalist and Internationalist', Fortnight, No. 291 (Jan., 1991), pp. 16-17.
