Kim Jong Il's Adages are Valuable Assets: S. Korean Journalist
Pyongyang, March 14 (KCNA) -- The south Korean internet newspaper Jaju Minbo carried an article written by its representative Ri Chang Gi in prison praising leader Kim Jong Il.

The article recalled that slogan "Let us live not merely for today but for tomorrow" was put up on the classroom wall of a school in south Korea some day in the past.

The slogan, an important quotation of Chairman of the National Defence Commission Kim Jong Il, taught a great lesson and gave strength to the students, Ri said, adding:

Recently posted on websites are lots of quotes from Kim Jong Il such as "Only fragrant flowers draw bees and butterflies and only kind officials draw people".

The author referred to the impressions he got seeing the book of important quotations of Kim Jong Il when he visited bookshops during his stay in Pyongyang.

Adages of Kim Jong Il are valuable assets of humankind, he stressed.

Study into the north will help one encounter touching stories that are related to President Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, he said.

There were many stories which he could not make public in fear of the charges with the violation of the "Security Law" and being branded as an "outrageous act", the author said, and stressed:

Those adages will be of great help to humankind.

Is it really necessary to brand everything from the north as bad and punish those following things of the north on charges of the violation of "Security Law" in the era of learning?

If this issue is taken to justice, this will become a laughing stock of the world.

The people and our future generations will take to heart the fact that there had been such a shameful happening in the history of the nation.

This is truly shameful. Let us please come to our senses.

This is an issue related to the elementary human ethics.
