Now she had a golden ball in her hand, which was her favourite plaything; and she was always tossing it up into the air, and catching it again as it fell. After a time she threw it up so high that she missed catching it as it fell; and the ball bounded away, and rolled along upon the ground, till at last it fell down into the spring. The princess looked into the spring after her ball, but it was very deep, so deep that she could not see the bottom of it. Then she began to bewail her loss, and said, 'Alas! if I could only get my ball again, I would give all my fine clothes and jewels, and everything that I have in the world.' Author Bio the Grimm Brothers The brothers Grimm, who gave us the fairy tales generally known by their name, were grave scholarly men who spent most of their lives in research.<br><br>Jacob was born in 1785 and Wilhelm a year later. Their father, a lawyer, died when they were children, but their mother was bent on seeing her sons follow in his footsteps, and this they did with financial aid from an aunt. They were born at Hanau in Hesse, and went to the University at Cassel, where they both qualified successfully in law. There was no money to help them to a position, and they had their mother to keep, so they took what work offered. Jacob became assistant to a famous specialist in Roman law, Professor Savigny, who showed him what research meant and implanted in his mind such a love of it that he became one of the great men of his time — not, however, on matters of law, but in philology, the study of language. study of language.
