My God is none other than the people. Only the popular masses are omniscient and omnipotent and almighty on earth. Therefore my lifetime motto is: "The people are my God.

Kim Il-Sung

Socialism is a human ideal, an inevitable course of historical development, and therefore it is perfectly clear that socialism will rise again in the end.

Kim Il-Sung

As fish cannot live without water, so guerrillas cannot live without the people.

Kim Il-Sung

The revolution itself originates from a dream of the future or from the craving for a new life.

Kim Il-Sung

What is Juche [the subject] in our Party's ideological work? What are we doing? We are not engaged in any other country's revolution, but precisely in the Korean revolution. This, the Korean revolution, constitutes Juche in the ideological work of our Party. Therefore, all ideological work must be subordinated to the interests of the Korean revolution.

Kim Il-Sung

In a nutshell, the idea of Juche means that the masters of the revolution and the work of construction are the masses of the people and that they are also the motive force of the revolution and the work of construction. In other words, one is responsible for one's own destiny and one has also the capacity for hewing out one's own destiny.

Kim Il-Sung

Thanks to our trust in people, we won everything.

Kim Il-Sung

If a man who professes to be a communist punishes an innocent person by labelling him a reactionary, he's no longer a communist, but the worst of criminals.

Kim Il-Sung

Revolutionaries, believe in the people and rely on them at all times and you shall always emerge victorious; if you are forsaken by them, you will always fail. Let this be your maxim in your life and struggle.

Kim Il-Sung

Man is the greatest being endowed with independence, creativity and consciousness and, at the same time, a beautiful creature who champions justice. Man, by nature, aspires to virtue and ennobling qualities and detests all that is evil and dirty. These unique features constitute his human traits.

Kim Il-Sung

War is not only a contest of strength, but also a test of morality and ethics.

Kim Il-Sung

A free and peaceful new world without exploitation and oppression was the age-long dream and ideal of humanity.

Kim Il-Sung

While there are still imperialist aggressors, the state that has no defense power of its own to protect its sovereignty against the internal and external enemies is, in fact, not a fully independent and sovereign state.

Kim Il-Sung

The basis of the Juche Idea is that man is the master of all things and the decisive factor in everything.

Kim Il-Sung

The people are the masters of the revolution in each country. It is like putting a cart before the horse that foreigners carry out the revolution for them. The revolution can neither be exported nor imported.
