#Quote
1 Imperialist aid is a noose of plunder and subjugation, aimed at robbing 10 and even 100 things for one thing that is given.
2 A film with an untidy plot cannot grip the audience and define their emotional response.
3 The cinema occupies an important place in the overall development of art and literature.
4 Overall relations between the North and the South have developed in favor of national reconciliation, unity and reunification.
5 Great ideology creates great times.
6 No faction is better or worse than any other. All come from the same mould; they are all products of capitalist influence in the working class movement. And they are a poison that destroys our Party and the working class movement in Korea.
7 No production of high ideological and artistic value can evolve out of a creative group whose members are not united ideologically and in which discipline and order have not been established.
8 A man who dreads trials and difficulties cannot become a revolutionary. If he is to become a revolutionary with an indomitable fighting spirit, he must be tempered in the arduous struggle from his youth. As the saying goes, early training means more than late earning.
9 National defense is the sacred duty of the young and all other people.
10 The revolution is carried out by means of one's thought, not through one's family background.
11 The liquidation of colonialism is a trend of the times which no force can hold back.
12 We oppose the reactionary policies of the U.S. government but we do not oppose the American people. We want to have many good friends in the United States.
