I promise to do my best, to be kind and helpful and to love our world.
I promise that I will do my best, to do my duty to the country where I live, to help other people and to keep the Cub Scout Law. The Scouts' Promise

Captain Hook rallied his dogs with a gesture. "'S'death and odds fish," he thundered, "who is to bring me that doodle-doo?" 

 

Captain Hook cried to his crew, “now here's a notion, let them (pan) fight the doodle-doo for their lives. 

 

If they kill him (doodle-doo), we're so much the better; if he kills them (Pan), we're none the worse.”

 

"Pan, who and what art thou?" he cried huskily.

 

"I'm youth, I'm joy," Peter answered at a venture, 

 

"I'm a little bird that has broken out of the egg."

 

Captain Hook did not know that the crocodile was waiting for him; for we (doodle-doo) purposely stopped the clock that this knowledge might be spared him: a little mark of respect from us at the end.

 

"Bad form," he cried jeeringly, and went content to the crocodile.

 

Thus perished James Hook.

 

 

Baden-Powell's Last Message (condensed):

 

I am happy.

 

I hope you are happy too.

 

Be happy. 

 

Enjoy life.

 

Lots of Success, Money and Treats can not make us truly happy. 

 

The world is jolly place. Try to enjoy life and be happy.

 

Being healthy, strong and useful helps us to grow happiness.

 

The world is beautiful and wonderful. 

 

Enjoy life.

 

Be content and do the best with want you have got in life.

 

Look on the bright side of life rather than the gloomier side.

 

Be happy to become happy.

 

Try and leave a place better than you find it.

 

Do your best.

 

Don’t waste a minute.

 

Be prepared

 

your friend, 

 

Baden-Powell of Gilwell
