With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall. Psalms 18:29
— Bible

A scout troop consists of twelve little kids dressed like schmucks following a big schmuck dressed like a kid.
Jack Benny troop quote

Progress is man's mode of existence. The general life of the human race is called Progress, the collective stride of the human race is called Progress. Progress advances; it makes the great human and terrestrial journey towards the celestial and the divine; it has its halting places where it rallies the laggard troop, it has its stations where itmeditates, in the presence of some splendid Canaan suddenly unveiled on its horizon, it has its nights when it sleeps; and it is one of the poignant anxieties of the thinker that he sees the shadow resting on the human soul, and that he gropes in darkness without being able to awakenthat slumbering Progress.
— Victor Hugo

If I were an American, as I am an Englishman, while a foreign troop was landed in my country, I never would lay down my arms never never never!
— William Pitt

I am also the product of a place called Paint Creek. Doesn't have a zip code. It's too small to be called a town along the rolling plains of Texas. We grew dryland cotton and wheat, and when I wasn't farming or attending Paint Creek Rural School, I was generally over at Troop 48 working on my Eagle Scout award.
— troop quotation by Rick Perry
