Important note: None of the two texts play an important role in the life of a Swiss scout.  A scout promise is considered as something very special. It is only meaningful if you really, really, really plan to keep that promise. It's a good guideline for the scout leader, though. In day-to-day life, a Swiss scout learns to live by the law in a very natural way, by following the example of his/her leader and his/her companions.
