A Scout smiles and whistles under all circumstances.
Leave this world a little better than you found it.
Girls should be brought up to be comrades and helpers, not to be dolls. They should take a real and not a visionary share in the welfare of the nation.
If you make listening and observation your occupation you will gain much more than you can by talk.
A Scout is never taken by surprise; he knows exactly what to do when anything unexpected happens.
Happiness is not mere pleasure, not the outcome of wealth. It is the result of active work rather than passive enjoyment of pleasure.
Be Prepared... the meaning of the motto is that a scout must prepare himself by previous thinking out and practicing how to act on any accident or emergency so that he is never taken by surprise.
No one can pass through life, any more than he can pass through a bit of country, without leaving tracks behind, and those tracks may often be helpful to those coming after him in finding their way.
We never fail when we try to do our duty, we always fail when we neglect to do it.
The most worth-while thing is to try to put happiness into the lives of others.
