Be Prepared

 

"Be prepared for what?" someone once asked Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of worldwide Scouting. "Why, for any old thing," he replied.

the scout slogan

Do a Good Turn Daily

 

An American visitor to London in 1909 lost his way in a dense fog. Presently a boy approached and guided him to his destination. The visitor, Mr. Boyce, tried to give the boy a tip but the boy refused it saying, “No thank you, sir. I am a Scout. I won’t take anything for helping.”
