Legend tells that the King of Scotland, Robert the Bruce, was sitting in a cave after being defeated in battle by the English during the Scottish Wars of Independence. Feeling sorry for himself and licking his wounds, he watched a spider struggling to spin a web, As many times as the silk failed to stick, the spider continued trying, until eventually it succeeded. Inspired by its determination and persistence, Robert remarshalled his forces and went on to give the English a fearsome trouncing at the battle of Bannockburn.
Whether or not there is any truth in the legend, we’ll never know, but it has long been used to illustrate how anybody can achieve anything if they try hard enough.
In this example of never giving up, the evidence is captured on film.
While it would have been easier for this little hero/heroine to eat the cracker in situ, I’m guessing it had a family to feed, hence its determination to take home the bacon, so to speak. 🙂
