Robert Bruce, the King of Scotland, was an ardent patriot and a gallant soldier. Unfortunately, he once lost his kingdom to England in a battle with the gallant soldiers. He fought with the English for his country over a long time, but he failed six times one after another.
While the pensive king in a lonely cave was brooding over his sad lot, a spider caught his view. He observed that a spider was trying to reach the ceiling, but it failed again and again. But the spider not giving up the struggle, reached its goal at last.
The perseverance and tenacity of the spider inspired Bruce to fight the English again. Swearing to do or die, he fought the English for the seventh time and became victorious over them.
