"Here, then, is Scouting in a nutshell: 
A game for boys under the leadership of boys with the wise guidance and counsel of a grown-up who has still the enthusiasm of youth in him. A purposeful game, but a game just the same, a game that develops character by practice, that trains for citizenship through experience in the out-of-doors."


[emphasis in the original attributed to Lord Baden Powell by Green Bar Bill Hillcourt 1936]
