Cubmaster’s Minute

Baltimore Area Council

Work while you work. play while you play. 

One thing at a time, that is the way.

All that you do, do with all your might.

Things done halfway are not done right.

What you are is god’s gift to you.

What you make of yourself is your gift to God.

Make it a good gift.

Baltimore Area Council

We have seen and heard about a lot of inventions tonight both serious and humorous, Having participated in this Pack Meeting I am sure you can all understand Thomas Edison assertion that inventions are 5% inspiration and 95% perspiration. Unfortunately, we are not yet done perspiring yet. That is of course unless one of you Cub Scouts has invented an Automatic cleanup machine. However, if we all work together I am sure we can make quick Work of this problem and adjourn our Invention Convention.

Six Million

Great Salt Lake Council

Today in our country there are over six million boys and adults in Scouting. That's a good thing to know...a good thing to think about when we get to wondering about the future.

Six million, keeping a promise to “do their best,” to “help other people,” and to “respect God and country.”

Six million, following Baden-Powell's admonition “try to leave this world a little better than you found it.”

These six million can make the difference in tomorrow.

These six million WILL make the difference in the future of this country and in the future manhood around the world.

Four Closing Thoughts

Circle Ten Council

One of the hardest things for anyone to do is to stick to what he knows is right while his friends are coaxing him or his enemies are threatening him to do the opposite.  A Cub Scout does his best.

A boy does what he knows; he’s what he does; what he’s going to be, he’s becoming.

Do Your Best – one of the most important things to learn in life is to put forth your best effort when doing something.  That is why we have the Cub Scout motto.  As a member of this pack, I hope you will put forth your best effort for the good of the pack and for your own good.

Don’t Give Up – to be good at anything, you have to believe that you can do it, and then practice it until you can.  There’s no easy way to become an expert.  You just have to keep at it, over and over.  There will be times you’ll think that you just can’t make it.  But don’t give up a task because it seems hard.  There are few things worth doing that are easy to do at first.
