Very Short Scoutmaster Minutes.

Recommended Posts

I like my SM minutes to be way way under a minute.

 

Turn the lights low in the room let everyone get quiet. Enjoy the moment of calm. Give them a line or two thats easy ro remember and wish them good night. A few of my favorites.

 

Nothing great was ever accomplished without enthusiasm. "Ralph Waldo Emmerson"

 

"It's more important to have character than to be a character"

 

"We are each personally responsible for the quality of our community" "my parents"

 

"The only time it's OK to smoke...is when you're on fire"

 

Anyone else have some short ones to share?

"Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from Bad Judgement."

"You can delegate authority, but you can never delegate responsibility for delegating a task to someone else. If you picked the right man fine, but if you picked the wrong man, the responsibility is yours..not his."

Richard E. Krafve, President, Raytheon Co.

 

And my alltime favorite quote;

 

"Character is power." Booker T. Washington

Character and morality are not creatures of conveniece.(sp?)

 

Aim high. That way you won't shoot yourself in the foot.

 

If it's easy it's probably not worth doing.

 

There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad equipment choices.

 

Any fool can destroy something. It requires greatness to build and even greater is he who re-builds.

There are only two types of people in the world...Those who are too important to lie to...and those who aren't important enough to lie to.

Be careful of what you say to others because once the words are spoken they may never be taken back. (even a sincere apology can't erase the memory.)

Never doubt that a small group of committed people can changed the world; indeed, they're the only people who ever have.

There are three types of people in this world. Some make mistakes and don't learn from them. Others make mistakes and do learn from them. But it is the wise that learn from the mistakes of others.

"Humankind has not woven the web of life.

We are but one thread within it.

Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.

All things are bound together.

All things connect."

Chief Seattle

you can DO it."

"Service is the rent we pay for being.

It is the very purpose of life,

and not something you do in your spare time."

Marion Wright Edelman

 

"People are like stained-glass windows.

They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,

but when the darkness sets in,

their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."

I still believe that people are really good at heart."
