JOHN ZEMAN of Dryburgh's Monument

Sepulchrum familiae Joannis Zeman de Dryburgh. 1628.

Incertum est quo loco mors te expectet; tu illam omni loco expecta. Ante senectutem cura, ut bene vivas; in senectute, ut bene moriaris. Seneca.

The sepulchre of the family of John Yeaman of Dryburgh 1628.

It's uncertain at what place death awaits thee; wait thou for it at every place. Before old age be careful to live well; in old age be careful to die well.
