Pyongyang, April 17 (KCNA) -- President Kim Il Sung was a peerlessly great man who made a history of steady victory in the spirit of revolutionary optimism, says Rodong Sinmun Monday in a signed article. His life was a brilliant one characterized by revolutionary optimism and an immortal history full of faith in sure victory and optimism, the article says, and goes on: His whole life represented an immortal revolutionary life of a great man who successfully explored the road of the Korean revolution, overcoming the most difficult and manifold hardships with faith in the victory of revolution and optimism without the slightest pessimism, despair, failure and frustration. He had always had the spirit of emerging victorious, converting misfortune into fortune and adversity into favorable conditions and he had such matchless pluck that there is always a way out. He thus always brought about only victory despite the stern tempest of the revolution. He who laughs last laughs the best. It was with this optimism and pluck that the President did everything he could have done for the accomplishment of the Juche cause by victoriously leading the protracted and arduous Korean revolution. He, with a deep insight into the historical necessity of succession to the revolutionary cause, found the most successful solution to the issue of succession to the leadership, thereby giving steady continuity to the revolutionary cause. This is the greatest feat that can be performed only by a great man born of Heaven capable of looking far into the future.
The President's great optimism is a noble revolutionary spirit based on the firm faith in the validity of the revolutionary cause, the popular masses' cause of independence. This is also a revolutionary spirit based on the absolute trust in the inexhaustible strength of the people and unbounded love for the homeland and people. The article says that the President's glorious history of revolutionary optimism is now being given steady continuity under the leadership of Kim Jong Il.
