As adults we must keep in minds that Scouters deal not in what is "taught"
by us to the boys, but in what is "caught" from us as examples to the boys.
We must not let the boys catch from us this disease of thinking that the
rules do not apply to us, or that it is ok to do what we wish so long as we
believe we won't be caught.
