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

Atticus, he was real nice. Most people are, Scout, when you finally see them.

A good soldier is a poor scout.

You look like a talent scout for a cemetery.

Well, one of the problems about being psychoanalyzed is, as Nietzsche said, Be careful lest in casting out your devils that you cast out the best thing that's in you. So many people who are really in deep analysis look as though and act as though they have been filleted. There's no bone there, there's no stuff! How to get rid of ego as dictator and turn it into messenger and servant and scout, to be in your service, is the trick.

To put yourself in another's place requires real imagination, but by doing so each Girl Scout will be able to love among others happily.

Badges mean nothing in themselves, but they mark a certain achievement and they are a link between the rich and the poor. For when one girl sees a badge on a sister Scout's arm, if that girl has won the same badge, it at once awakens an interest and sympathy between them.

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.

Giving jazz the Congressional seal of approval is a little like making Huck Finn an honorary Boy Scout.

I think one of the great problems we have in the Republican Party is that we don't encourage you to be nasty. We encourage you to be neat, obedient, loyal and faithful and all those Boy Scout words, which would be great around a campfire but are lousy in politics.

A Scout is never taken by surprise; he knows exactly what to do when anything unexpected happens.

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.

I was in the Boy Scouts for about four years until my troop disbanded.

It is really one of the best activities youths can get involved in and nearly every scout I have known has been a class act due to the discipline the Scouts have instilled in them.

A Scout smiles and whistles under all circumstances.

I was never a Boy Scout, but oh, I wanted to be one when I was a kid about ten or eleven years old. But there wasn't anyplace where I could ever join the Boy Scouts.

Well, mines was a sub machine gun. That was my personal weapon with being the first person in the patrol. I used to lead the patrol. Used to have a leading scout, a second scout and then the officer. The officer would be third. As I say, it was educational.

I have never forgotten my days as an Eagle Scout.

I didn't know it at the time, but what really came out of my Scouting was learning how to lead and serve the community. It has come in handy in my career in government.

I was a Scout years ago, before the movement started, when my father took me fishing, camping and hunting. Then I was sorry that more girls could not have what I had. When I learned of the movement, I thought, here is what I always wanted other girls to have.

I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks.

Atticus said to Jem one day, I’d rather you shot at tin cans in the backyard, but I know you’ll go after birds. Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird. That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it. Your father’s right, she said. Mockingbirds don’t do one thing except make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corn cribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.

They would come down in Mississippi, they hired me as a talent scout.

And I would go all over Mississippi, Alabama, Texas, and find out different artists for them.

We must depend upon the Boy Scout Movement to produce the MEN of the future.

Unfortunately, I'm not a person that's always capable of living up to the Boy Scout philosophy.

My brother Jim and I spent many wonderful summers working on dairy farms in Wisconsin owned by Mom's cousins, and as members of our local Boy Scout troop.

One of the first duties of a Scout is obedience to authority.

He must obey his orders in the first place and put his own amusement or desires in the second.

In assisting his 'neighbour' every day to the best of his ability, and keeping truth, honesty, and kindness perpetually before him, the Boy Scout, with as little formality as possible, is pleasing God.

All Scouts should know about St. George. St. George is the Patron Saint of England; he is also the Patron Saint of cavalry in all countries, and therefore Patron Saint of Scouts.

One of the finest statesmen of the present time is also a first-class scout, and that is Mr. Roosevelt, the late President of the United States of America.

Among my activities was membership in the Boy Scouts;

I rose each year through the ranks, eventually achieving the rank of Eagle Scout and undertaking leadership roles in the organization.

All the guys called the Olympic Village a high-class Boy Scout camp.
