What you would do today, do now
काल करे सो आज कर आज करे सो अब ।
पल में परलय होयगी बहुरि करोगे कब ॥
What you would do tomorrow, do today, what you would do today, do now.
Disaster may come in a moment, when will you do all that you intend?
— Kabir (the weaver)
Christopher Chapman posted the above saying on my Facebook profile last night, in response to a status update in which I had asked if I could put off answering a number of emails until the next morning. Good advice, I think! The Devanagari typeface that the image is set with is the one that I designed at Reading. As far as that goes, I should heed Kabir’s warning, and finish its character set immediately.
