President Kim Il Sung became the great sun of the Korean nation, who are resourceful and courageous, love justice and truth and value sentiments and obligation and began his revolutionary activities with going among the people. He shared sorrow and pleasure with the people who were forced the fate of being the ruined one, liberated the country by uniting the people into one, and built a dignified independent country of the people on the land which had suffered from humiliation due to the worship of big powers and submission.

The President regarded the popular masses as heaven and teacher as well as the most omnipotent and powerful beings in the world. Therefore, it was the President’s creed and motto that if one loves the people, regards them as the best and relies on them, nothing is impossible.
He wrote on the preface of his reminiscences that recollect his whole life.
“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.” Whenever he found an opportunity or met the officials, he earnestly told them to go among the people.
Saying that going among the people is like to take tonic and that failing to do so is to take poison, the President continued field guidance to meet the people during his whole life. That was why he put forward ideas and policies that were run through with the idea The People Are My God and when he built the motherly party and the people’s state that serve the people.
