Eng Verwandlung

Den Oflaf vu menger Verwandelung huet sech zougespëtzt mat menger Entdeckung vum Hellege Franz vun Assisi während enger Pilgerfaart op déi ech mat enger Scoutstrupp vu menger Schoul goung. -Abbé Pierre

(The process of my transformation came to a head with my discovery of St. Francis of Assisi during a pilgrimage I went on with a scout troop from my school.)

Kloër an däitlech

De Scoutstheater entwéckelt d’Virstellungs- an Ausdrocksverméigen. Theater spillen ass eppes flottes. Et ass net wichtëg wat fir eng Zort Stëmm s de hues, esou laang wéi s de deng Wierder kloër an däitlech ausschwätz. – Lord Baden-Powell (Scouting for Boys)

[The Scouts act] develops the power of imagination and expression. Play acting is good fun. It doesn’t matter what kind of voice you have so long as you get out your words clearly and distinctly.]

Badgen

Badgen u sech hu keng Bedeitung, mä si sti fir eng vollbruecht Leeschtung a si sinn eng Verbindung zwësche räich an aarm. Well wann ee Meedchen e Badge op senger Guideschwëster sengem Aarm gesäit, wann dat Meedchen sech de selwechte Badge verdéngt huet, dann erwächt domat Interessi a Sympathie zwëschen hinnen. -Juliette G. Low

(Badges mean nothing in themselves, but they mark a certain achievement and they are a link between the rich and the poor. For when one girl sees a badge on a sister Scout’s arm, if that girl has won the same badge, it at once awakens an interest and sympathy between them)
