I have had a most happy life and I want each of you to have as happy a life,
I believe that God put us in this jolly world to be happy and enjoy life.
Happiness doesn't come from being rich, nor merely from being successful in
your career, nor by self-indulgence One step towards happiness is to make
yourself healthy and strong while you are a boy, so that you can be useful and
so can enjoy life when you are a man
Nature study will show you how full of beautiful and wonderful things God
has made the world for you to enjoy Be contented with what you have got
and make the best of it Look on the bright side of things instead of the gloomy
But the real way to get happiness is by giving out happiness to other people.
Try and leave this world a little better than you found it and when your turn
comes to die, you can die happy in feeling that at any rate you have not
wasted your time but have done your best "Be prepared" in this way, to live
happy and to die happy-stick to your Scout Promise always-even after you
have ceased to be a boy-and God help you to do it
