There was a king in Scotland . His name was Robert Bruce . He fought many battles and won them . But once he was badly defeated .
He ran away from the battle field to save his life . He took shelter in a cave where he hid himself . He was immersed in deep sorrow and out of disappointment he gave up all hope and struggle .
But one day he saw a spider in that cave . It was trying to reach the roof of the cave where it had a cobweb . It made six attempts to reach its web but every time it slipped down .
Now the king got interested and watched the spider carefully . He was astonished to see that spider did not lose heart but continued its efforts to reach up at the top . At the seventh attempt the spider was successful in its attempt of reaching its web .
This incident boosted up the spirit of King Bruce . He gained new strength and fresh courage . He gathered his forces and fought another battle .
This time he fought with new vigour and enthusiasm and was ultimately successful in making his country free .
