Scoutmaster Minute and Baden powell Quote by Paul Johnson

Aim at Something High

“In the long run, men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, though they might fail immediately, they had better aim at something high.”
That quote is from Walden, by Henry David Thoreau. Remember the troop shoot at the rifle range this past summer? You hit the target only if you aimed at it. Well, Thoreau realized that this is true in life, also. Whatever your goals are, you won’t achieve them unless you aim for them. You might completely miss the mark on your first few shots, but as you practice and gain knowledge, and experience, and control, you’ll become a better marksman, able to consistently hit your target.
And set a high goal for yourself. Those who have reached the rank of Eagle Scout in this troop will tell you that they decided early to aim for Scouting’s highest rank, and then they kept that target in their sights until they hit it.

Baden Powell Quote:

The most worth-while thing is to try to put happiness into the lives of others.
