The Quotable Scouter communicates the values that have been upheld by the scouting movement ever since Robert Baden-Powell published Scouting for Boys in 1908. These values, so critical to our nation and world, are worth exploring repeatedly as we work to develop strong character in ourselves and the young people we serve.

Praise For The Quotable Scouter: Moral Inspiration for Scouts of All Ages

“Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”
- Fyodor Dostoyevsky, 1821–1881
