Inspirational Robert the Bruce quote “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” greeting card by Scottish company Hole in my Pocket.

This quote is associated with a famous Scottish warrior Robert the Bruce who was King of the Scots from 1306 until his death in 1329.

After a defeat in battle in 1306 by Edward I he was forced to flee and took refuge in a cave. While there he observed a spider spinning a large web. Twice its web collapsed but the spider kept working and on the third attempt it succeeded. Inspired by the small creatures' determination against all odds Bruce returned to the battle and eventually was victorious.
