„It was nerve-racking to begin with but once I started and the audience accepted it I relaxed. It has been surreal.“

—  Susan Boyle, Context: It was nerve-racking to begin with but once I started and the audience accepted it I relaxed. It has been surreal. I didn’t realise this would be the reaction I just got on with it. I can hardly remember what happened. I had my eyes closed most of the time. It really didn’t dawn on me what was happening. I did it all for my late mum. I wanted to show I could do something with my life. On her first performance in the contest, as quoted in "Britain’s Got Talent star Susan Boyle won't get makeover says Amanda Holden" in The Mirror (17 April 2009) http://www.mirror.co.uk/celebs/news/2009/04/17/britain-s-got-talent-star-susan-boyle-won-t-get-makeover-says-amanda-holden-115875-21283622/

„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 Scottish National Party politician and former First Minister of Scotland 1954
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.
