Mesej Lord Baden Powell
My dear Scouts, I am 80 years old. What do you think of that? But I can’t say that I feel very much older than some of you. I want you to have as long and jolly a life as I’ve had, and you can get it, if you keep yourself healthy and helpful to others.
I’ll tell you my secret for this, I’ve always tried to carry out the Scout Promise and the Scout Law in all that I do. If you do that you will make a sucess of your life and will have a very happy time, even if you live to be 80, like me.
I wish you a long and happy life and lots of “good camping”.
mesej on his 80th Birthday at Gilwell Park.
Learning by doing, active participation,with others.
The patrol system is scouting and scouting is the patrol system, they stand and fall together.
When planning for a decade, plant trees. When planning for life, train and educate peoples.
No boy is a Scout unless he does his best to keep his promise.
The whole of scouting is based on the Scout Law and the Scout Promise.
Scouting is to developed the qualities of dicipline, loyalty and good citizen.
Scouting is a gane for boys, but a job if work man – Lord Baden Powell
Scout is a small letter, s. Scout is a big letter, S
Perkataan “TIDAK”, tidak ada dalam kamus pengakap. Anggap ia sebagai suatu kata lucah yang tidak boleh disebutkan.
I would urge that [ at the Jamboree ] we do not let our boys be content with the mere fact of being in camp with those of other nations, but that we should encourage them to utilise every minute of the short time they are there to make acquaintance, and from acquaintance friendship with their brother Scouts, their future fellow men in the world. Each boy could then go forth from the Jamboree with a new responsibility upon him, namely, that of an apostle, to his particular District, of peace and goodwill.
Baden Powell 1929
The question has been put to me from time to time: ‘Is a Jamboree a good thing for boy, or for the Movement, or for Country, or for international relations?’ Personally I have my own answer, but always before making any decision of that kind I consult the authority that I think of as best – and that is the boy himself.
Farewell speech at The Hague
International Conference, 1937
I believe God but us in this jolly world to be happy and enjoy life. Happiness doesn’t come from being rich, not merely from being successful in your career, nor by self-indulgence. One step towards happiness is to make yourself healthy and strong while you are a boy, so that you can be useful and so enjoy when you are a man.
Nature study will show you how full of beautiful and wonderful things God has made the world for you to enjoy. Be contened with what have got and make the best of it. Look at the bright side of things instead of the gloomy one.
But the real way to get happiness is by giving out happiness to the people. Try leave this world a little better than you found it and when it comes to your live to die, you can die happy in feeling that at any rate you not wasted your time but your best.
“BE PREPARED” In this way to live happy and to die happy – stick to your Scout Promise always even after you eased to be a boy – and god help you do it.
Baden – Powell of Giwell
