His Imperial Majesty's Words of Wisdom
“Ethiopians are proud of the three thousand years of their recorded history, as well they may be. We are proud of what has been
achieved during Our reign, and we thank God for it. We are content to let History judge the wisdom of Our actions. But while we
cannot escape the consciousness of each day’s immediacy and the urgency of the problems which each day presents, we must
nonetheless be ever mindful that just as our nation’s history stretches back far in time, so does an unlimited future lie before us,
especially in this nuclear and space era. We must all act and take our decisions mindful of the far-reaching implications and
consequences of each of them. What We have said to you today, We know, carries with it implications for generation upon
generation of future Ethiopians. We are persuaded that what We have said will, in the long term, redound the everlasting benefit
of those who will follow us. Man is mortal; each one of us here will, one day, face his Maker and answer for his actions. Those of
us to whom the grave responsibility of governing have been given bear a heavy burden before the people and before Almighty
God for the proper discharge of our duties. Let us all labour in this sense, that the people of Ethiopia may ever live in happiness
and prosperity.” – Girmawi Qedamawi Haile Selassie
“It is not humanly possible to repay the loving Son who, despite His innocence, was crucified to absolve mankind from sin, and
yet prayed on the crucifix to His Father to forgive those who crucified Him." - Girmawi Qedamawi Haile Selassie
HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY HAILE SELASSIE I...
"We love and respect the brotherhood of mankind and the fatherhood of God."
Haile Selassie I.
"I have the highest respect for the Bible as a whole. We also recognise the rightful name the Bible bears. We find that in all the
periods of the Old Testament, in the time of Patriarchs, Kings, and Prophets, great miracles were done. On the other hand, the
time in which Our Lord Himself gave the command to go to all the world and to preach is also of high value."

QHS
"Our efforts as free men must be to establish new relationships, devoid of any resentment and hostility, restored to our belief
and faith in ourselves as individuals, dealing on a basis of equality with other equally free people".

H.I.M. Haile Selassie I..
"Ethiopia has existed for 3,000 years. In fact, it exists ever since the first man appeared on Earth. My dynasty has ruled since the
Queen of Sheba met King Solomon and a Son was born of their union." - H.I.M Emperor Haile Selassie I

"The flag with the red, yellow, and green with Our seal "the Lion of Judah hath prevailed"(Revelation 5:5) is the symbol of
Ethiopia's independence, its a symbol of freedom."- H.I.M Emperor Haile Selassie I

"The value of a flag springs from the sacrifices made to defend it, as the symbol of Our independence. Otherwise there is no
difference between a flag and any other piece of cloth.
Our flag is a source of eternal inspiration, loyalty, and a symbol of the sacred duty and obligation as a soldier. It is a moral
sentinel." - H.I.M Emperor Haile Selassie I
The Essence of Power

"The power which you possess is but one side of the coin; the other is responsibility. There is no power or authority without
responsibility, and he who accepts the one cannot escape or evade the other. Each one of you and each servant of the Ethiopian
nation and people would do well to ponder these words, to take them to his heart, and to guide his conduct in accordance with
their teachings. This is the challenge which faces you today. Let your labours here during the coming year demonstrate your
capacity to meet it. May Almighty God guide and assist you in your work."

Development

The Lion of Judah has prevailed
Haile Selassie I, Elect of God
King of Kings of Ethiopia

Although the beginnings of civilization of each country vary in time, the fundamental factors which gave impetus to each country
to awaken and embark on the road to progress to reach their present level of development, are those qualities which are
enshrined in the nature of man, namely desire and fortitude.

The partner who places his own short-range ambitions ahead of the long-range interests of the partnership has embarked on a
course which will ultimately result in the dissolution of the partnership itself.

It is by the understanding of past difficulties that we can bequeath fundamental guidance which would be of pride to the coming
generations we therefore urge our people to struggle and to make sacrifices for those things which will enable them to
ameliorate their conditions of life and leave a richer heritage.
"A man's happiness is to make his brother happy, and to serve his country. " - Girmawi Qedamawi Haile Selassie (His Imperial
Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I), Elect of God, Defender of the Faith, Father of Africa
"Influences abound which will not hesitate to divide Us, to pit Us one against the other and to stir up disharmony and suspicion
where only brotherhood and confidence should be found.

Each of Us depends on the other, can learn from the other and in pursuing his own destiny, will go further and succeed more
quickly with others.

Our greatest asset is Our unity, and We must exploit it to the fullest. " - Girmawi Qedamawi Haile Selassie

"Africa's victory, although proclaimed, is not yet total, and areas of resistance still remain. Today, we name as our first great task
the final liberating of those Africans still dominated by foreign exploitation and control. With the goal in sight and uriqualified
triumph within our grasp, let us not now falter or lag or relax."

"The great nations of the world would do well to remember that in the modern age even their own fates are not wholly in their

"The Imperial dignity shall remain perpetually attached to the line of Haile Selassie I, descendant of King Sahle Selassie, whose
line descends without interruption from the dynasty of Menelik I, son of the Queen of Ethiopia, the Queen of Sheba, and King
Solomon of Jerusalem."

"Ethiopia has existed for 3,000 years. In fact, it exists ever since man first appeared on earth. My dynasty has ruled ever since the
Queen of Sheba met King Solomon and a son was born of their union."

"One should realize that thriftiness is the basis for the accumulation of wealth and the economic growth of a nation. One seldom
minimizes the value of money earned by the sweat of the brow however small it may be, but for the extravagant even a huge
amount of money is worthless."

Africans, no more and no less than other men, possess all human attributes, talents and deficiencies, virtues and faults."

H.I.M QEDAMAWI HAILE SELASSIE has Spoken;

" Knowing that material and spiritual progress are essential to man, we must ceaselessly work for the equal attainment of both."
"As St. George who killed the dragon is the Patron Saint of Our Army, as well as Our Allies, let Us unite with Our Allies in
everlasting friendship and amity in order to be able to stand against the godless and cruel dragon which has newly risen and
which is oppressing mankind." - Girmawi Qedamawi Haile Selassie

"The promotion and maintenance of higher standard of living and growing social harmony of Our beloved people continues to
be Our permanent desire; and the achievement of these objectives can be obtained only by making maximum use and taking full
advantage of all natural resources of Our Empire, including its labour force; and We are strongly desirous of affording Our
people better opportunities to obtain employment according to their individual desires and capabilities." - Haile Selassie the

"Men were supposed to be the equals of the living angels who unceasingly sang praises before the eternal God. Had this been so,
peoples of the world would not have been divided along lines of enmity."

Progress. Volume Two: page 41.
"The heroism, developed in the blood of Our people and passed from generation to generation, has served to this day as a
bulwark for Our freedom, so that Ethiopia has never had to bear the yoke of slavery. To this, history and the world bear witness."
- Girmawi Qedamawi Haile Selassie I
COMING OUT OF THE MOUTH OF RASTAFARI:

With the raising of all men to their
rightful dignity and honour as individuals, they will be able
to regard their fellows, of whatever nation, of whatever race, of whatever religious, linguistic or historical tradition, as equals,
without jealousy, without fear, without undue pride.

Feb 1, 1965
COMING OUT OF THE MOUTH OF RASTAFARI:

For any state or individual to limit its endeavours to satisfy its selfish desire, in this age of interdependence, is to live outside of
the realm of reality. The era of such isolated
existence is long past. Instead men have started to think in terms of their fellow-men, their country and the world community.
All must strive unceasingly to further these simple and yet fundamental principles and ideals so that there shall be a better
tomorrow for generations to come.

Dec 6, 1966
 
" Today, we look to the future calmly, confidently, and courageously. We look to the vision of an Africa not merely free but
united. In facing this new challenge, we can take comfort and encouragement from the lessons of the past. We know that there
are differences among us. Africans enjoy different cultures, distinctive values, special attributes. But we also know that unity can
be and has been attained among men of the most disparate origins, that differences of race, of religion, of culture, of tradition,
are no insuperable obstacle to the coming together of peoples. History teaches us that unity is strength”. —Words of H.I.M.

Christian people, had we been worthy of the Name, peace would have reigned on all the face of the Earth, and would have risen
to the level of the immortal angels who always glorify the Eternal God, and the peoples of the world would no longer have

"As you all know, it is centuries past since Our country, Ethiopia, accepted the Gospel of Christ. We learn from the Holy
Scriptures that the first Ethiopian who confessed faith in Jesus Christ was baptized only a few months later after the death and
resurrection of Our Lord. From then on Christianity spread steadily among the Ethiopian people and became the religion of the
Ethiopians in the Fourth Century. It is a matter of pride for Us, a special cause for thankfulness to Almighty God, when We recall
that the Christian Faith was introduced to Our people by the Imperial Court and through the instrumentality of the then reigning
Monarch.

Ethiopian history testifies that Our ancestors, who rose after the first Christian Emperors, were men and women who had great
zeal and keenness for the Faith of Christ and who did all in their power for its propagation among Our people. Many among
them, like Emperor Caleb who lived in the Fifth Century and Emperor Lalibela and his immediate successors who lived in the
Twelth Century, have been canonized.

When the countries of the Middle East, North East Africa and Asia Minor, where the Gospel was preached by the Apostles, were
over-run by and succumbed under a power opposed to the Christian Faith, the sovereigns and people of Ethiopia, firm in their
deep love for the Faith of Christ and supplemented by the nature of their native land, put up great struggles to preserve Ethiopia
as an island of Christianity.

Deep is Our thankfulness to Our God for this grace. Numerous are our ancestors, who throughout the centuries consecrated and
sacrificed their lives on the battlefield that Ethiopia might survive strong in her Christian Faith." - Girmawi Qedamawi Haile

"We encountered a sense of purpose, of dedication, of vision, which, We are persuaded, found its genesis in the common
acceptance of the ideal of African unity, in the common response to the unique challenge which modern Africa presents to each
of Us, in the common crusade in which We are all enlisted....It is this spirit which will sweep Us forward to final, conclusive,
glorious victory in the struggle to overcome the obstacles which still remain before Us in the making of a united Africa. It is in

a man who knows from whence he comes and where he is going will co-operate with his fellow human beings. He will not be
satisfied with merely doing his ordinary duties but will inspire others by his good example. You are being watched by the nation

rise before the rainbow of accomplished goals will appear on the horizon. African civilization in its potential magnitude must be
able to command fortitude, patience, tolerance, and diligence. To sustain us in all our tasks we count on the women of Africa.
Without their relentless vigilance no aspect of our responsibilities can be attained. Woman's role has never been so demanding,

If we permit ourselves to be tempted by narrow self-interest and vain ambition, if we barter our beliefs for short term advantage,
who will listen when we claim to speak for conscience and who will contend that our words deserve to be heeded ? We must
speak out on major world issues, courageously, openly and honestly, and in blunt terms of right and wrong. If we yield to
blandishments or threats, if we compromise when no honourable compromise is possible our influence will be sadly diminished
and our prestige woefully prejudiced and weakened. Let us not deny our ideals or sacrifice our right to stand as the champions
of the poor the ignorant the oppressed everywhere. The acts by which we live and the attitudes by which we act must be clear
beyond question. Principles alone can endow our deeds with force and meaning. Let us be true to what we believe that our
beliefs may serve and honour us.

ULTIMATE CHALLENGE
The problems which confront us today are equally unprecedented . They have no counterparts in human experience. Men search
the pages of history for solutions for precedents but there are none.

This then is the ultimate challenge. Where are we to look for our survival for the answers to the questions which have never
before been posed ?

We must look first to Almighty God Who has raised man above the animals and endowed him with intelligence and reason. We
must put our faith in Him that He will not desert us or permit us to destroy humanity which He created in His image.
And we must look into ourselves into the depth of our souls. We must become something we have never been and for which our
education and experience and environment have ill-prepared us. We must become bigger than we have been more courageous
greater in spirit larger in outlook. We must become members of new race, overcoming petty prejudice owing our ultimate
allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community.

"Africa has made great strides toward achieving the measures of self reliance to which we all looked forward. Independent

THE TEMPLE OF THE MOST HIGH begins with the human body, which housed our Life, essence of our existence. Africans are in
bondage today because they approach Spirituality through Religion provided by foreign Invaders and conquerors. We must stop
confusing religion and Spirituality. Religion is a set of rules, regulations and rituals created by humans which were supposed to
help people grow Spiritually.

Due to human imperfection religion has become corrupt, political, divisive and a tool for power struggle. Spirituality is not
theology or ideology. It is simply a way of life, pure and original as was given by the most High. Spirituality is a network linking
us to the Most High, the universe and each other. As the essence of our existence it embodies our Culture, true identity,
nationhood and destiny.

A people without a nation they can really call their own is a people without a soul.
AFRICA ❤️ is our nation and is in Spiritual and physical bondage because Her leaders are turning to outside forces for solutions
to the African problems when everything Africa needs is within her.

When AFRICAN righteous people come together, the world come together. This is our divine destiny.

+2020-CLEAR: JAH-HOLDS THE-KEY BECAUSE-JAH IS THE-KEY:

Wherever one turns, if he has but eyes to see and the willingness to look clearly and honestly, the Ethiopian nation has been
utterly transformed in the brief period which has elapsed since 1955. But how much greater have been the changes of the far
longer time since 1931 when We promulgated for Our people Ethiopia's first written Constitution? And searching further back
into the past, how far has the nation traveled only during the years of our lifetime? We were born into the period when the
colonial powers carved Africa into so-called spheres of influence.

The developments have followed one another pell-mell, at an ever increasing pace, for change is the law of life. The physical
changes have been impressive. But even more impressive, and equally, if not more important, have been the changes wrought in
the mentality and psychology of the Ethiopian people. The physical face of Ethiopia shall continue to change in the years ahead.
Ethiopia's cities and towns shall continue to grow. Agriculture shall be modernized. Communications shall weld the nation ever
closer. So, too, shall the future witness the introduction of ever more drastic and revolutionary changes into the mental attitudes
and outlook of the people. New questions shall be posed to our ancient, traditional, and customary habits of thought. Long-held
conceptions and beliefs shall come under ever closer critical scrutiny and examination. Our response to these challenges will
decide the future...

TEACHINGS OF HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY...When I myself took over this responsibility in 1909 (1916), it was necessary to correct
the chaotic neglect of fully six years and to make a beginning with the work not yet started, i.e. of intro­ducing the new
civilization. I spent my time working to the best of my ability, while my own ideas and the people fond of the old customs
(particularly as the latter had many supporters) squeezed me like wood between two pieces of iron. There was very little time
that I could spend in idle conversations and doing the things that give one pleasure.

"It is a truism that man is mortal, but his achievements during his brief sojourn are vital both for the history he leaves behind
him and the benefits derived therefrom by posterity."

"The League of Nations failed and failed basically because of its inability to prevent aggression against my country. But, neither
the depth of that failure nor the intervening catastrophes could dull the perception of the need and the search for peace through
Collective Security. So it is that here in the United Nations we have dedicated ourselves anew to those high and indeed essential
ideals, essential if the world is to continue on the path of peace"

"One should realize that thriftiness is the basis for the accumulation of wealth and the economic growth of a nation. One seldom
minimizes the value of money earned by the sweat of the brow however small it may be, but for the extravagant even a huge
amount of money is worthless. Know how to use your money wisely and effectively."

What do we seek for Africa ? We seek to consolidate and guarantee our precious liberty as independent nations. We seek
freedom for our still dependent brothers. We seek Africa's economic growth and development, the betterment of the way of life
of Africans and all men. We seek the closet collaboration with those others Asians, Europeans, North and South Americans who
share our desires and who are willing to cooperate with us. We seek that self sufficiency which will enable us to play our rightful
role in international affairs and live in full harmony with all men. We seek to make our voices heard and our views heeded on the
major problems confronting the world today.

We repeat what We have stated on numerous past occasions. Our weapons are destined for defence alone; they will never be
used in aggression.

Ethiopia seeks no territory belonging to others, Ethiopia cherishes no dreams of expansion at the expense of her neighbours.
Were this the case , we would have acted long ago.

Ethiopia harbours no ill feeling towards any. She seeks to live in peace and harmony with all.

But let him who would despoil the Ethiopian nation beware. Let him think, and think again. Our policy is clear, our position is
sound, our determination is unshakeable. We are a united people, spared from tribal differences.
