TRY, TRY AGAIN
GOD HELPS THOSE WHO HELP THEMSELVES
FAILURE IS THE PILLAR OF SUCCESS
There was a King called Robert Bruce who was the King of Scotland. He loved his people very much and his subjects were very happy with him. But the King of England, Edward I wanted to be King of Scotland too. So he attacked Scotland with an army. There were many battles which were won by the English. Robert Bruce fought very bravely but he was beaten by the English. The English tried to catch Robert and he had to take shelter in a lonely cave. He had lost all hope of beating the English.4essay.blogspot.com
One day he was sitting in a pensive mood. All of a sudden 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. "If a spider can keep trying until it succeeds, I can do the same. I have tried to beat the English many times but I will try again,".4essay.blogspot.com
He came out of the cave. He gathered his small army together. Robert Bruce and his followers attacked the English soldiers and began to push them back towards England, The two Kings met in the famous battle of Bannock Burn. King Edward II, the son of King Edward I, had 10,000 men in his army and Robert Bruce had only 3,000. But luck was on the side of the Scots and the English were defeated. The Scots had won their freedom from English rule.
