Robert Bruce was the king of Scotland. The English attacked Scotland and conquered it. Bruce wanted to free his country. He tried many times but failed. Without heart, or filled with deep despair, he went to a forest. He hid himself in a cave. He thought of giving up the struggle.
When he was so thinking, he saw a spider. It was trying to reach its cobweb. But every time it failed. It had tried eight times and now grew tired. So, it rested for a while. It started its march for the ninth time. But it fell down senseless. King Bruce thought that it would try no more. But when the spider came to its senses, it started again. It moved slowly and this time it succeeded in reaching its home.
King Bruce learnt a lesson. He also decided to try once more. He left the cave. He collected his armies. He tried once more. He fought and won freedom for his country.
Moral: Try, try and try again., until you succeed.
