- Many Taiwanese people have been interacting and associating with the Chinese for a long period of time, so their perspectives can be very valuable when addressing issues concerning Mainland China. We should view Mainland China from the perspective of Taiwan as a whole, instead of only from the DPP's point of view.
- Su Tseng-chang (2013) cited in "Taiwan should know more about China: Su" on The China Post, 23 May 2013.

- Su Tseng-chang (2013) cited in "DPP willing to normalize cross-strait relations: Su" on The China Post, 10 November 2013.
- The DPP will engage (mainland) China with a positive attitude and confidence, hoping to foster constructive and well-intentioned dialogues, while maintaining the party's values and basic positions. Unfortunately, (mainland) China remains stubborn and has always tried to coerce Taiwan into a framework defined by nobody but China.

- Everybody is born as a mother’s child. When a person does not respect life, but only uses death tolls (number of 228 massacre 20,000 victims) to measure how big a historical tragedy was, how then are we to conduct a dialogue with a person like this?
- Su Tseng-chang (2014) cited in "DPP’s Su condemns 228 Massacre remarks" on Taipei Times, 2 March 2014.
- (Mainland) China today is like the Chinese Nationalist Party when I first entered politics (in the 1970s), when it tried to control Taiwan through martial law. Today, (Taiwan) society is entirely liberal and we have managed to come this far.

- Kneeling before (mainland) China and begging for mercy would not make Taiwan better.
- Su Tseng-chang (2019) cited in "Kneeling to China won’t help ties: Su" on Taipei Times, 9 October 2019.
- Taiwan is a free, democratic and liberal nation, so the government would not issue a mask ban, but the government would not tolerate masked thugs, such as the man who tossed red paint on Hong Kong singer and rights advocate Denise Ho on the sidelines of a rally last month.
- Su Tseng-chang (2019) cited in "No ban on rally masks, MOI head and premier say" on Taipei Times, 9 October 2019.

- As long as there is equality, reciprocity and no political preconditions, we (Taiwan) are willing to engage in goodwill with (mainland) China. As for China's harassment of Taiwan with military aircraft, warships, unreasonable suppression and political actions, the one being most unreasonable is China. Taiwan does not want to close the door to China. It is China that has used various means to oppress and treat Taiwan unreasonably.
- Su Tseng-chang (2022) cited in "Taiwan says it's willing to engage with China, doesn't want to close door" on Arab News, 12 June 2022.
