A photograph of the face of Scottish poet and writer Hugh MacDiarmid from a plaque on the wall of a house in Biggar, Scotland, together with a line from his most famous poem, A Drunk Man Looks at the Thistle:
‘Let the lesson be, to be yersels
And to mak that worth bein.’
Translated it means Let the lesson be to be yourselves and to make that worth being.
