Griz man (for those of you whom have never met Adrian, he's very tall and
built like a grizzy bear):
Why didn't you ask me?? Have I've got Scouting quotes??
(the answer is yes!) Okay....give me time to get back from this hot dry place
shake off about four pounds o' sand and send you a list...or you can stop by
by my place and get a copy of "Aids to Scoutmastership" written by the Man
himself, Baden Powell (it is available from the BSA and also from the National
Council, Boy Scouts of Canada (where I got my copy, sort of...). IT is in the
box....oops, By now, it should be at Alexandria....no matter, I'll make you
a copy and send it your way soon...
For now, though, here is an example of what's in there:
Why is Nature Lore considered a Key Activity in Scouting??
That is a question on which hangs the difference between Scout work and that
of the ordinary boy's club.
It is easily answered in the phrase: "we want to teach our boys not merely how
to get a living, but how to live"--that is, in the higher sense, how to enjoy li
Nature Lore, as I have probably insisted only too often, gives the best means
of opening out the minds and thoughts of boys, and at the same time, if the
point is not lost sight of by their Scoutmaster, it gives them the power of
appreciating beauty in nature, and consequently in art, such as leads them to
a higher enjoyment of life.
---Lord Baden Powell
