King Robert Bruce ruled over Scotland. Once he was defeated by the English. He ran for his dear life. His enemies followed him. He hid himself in a cave. When he was lying there, he saw a spider that fell from its web. It tried again and again to reach its web, but it fell every time. It tried nine times but failed. The king thought that the spider would try no more. But it tried once again. This time it reached its web. It gave the king a new hope. He said to himself, “When this small insect can succeed by trying again and again, why should not I try once again and succeed?” He came out of the cave. He gathered a large army and attacked the English. This time they fought very bravely and defeated them.
- Try, Try again
- Never lose heart
