Thought for the Day

“I’m not interested in being pegged down with narrow definitions. I’m not interested in defining anything too closely. As soon as one defines, one limits. I don’t want to limit what King Crimson is. I’d rather use some vague terms and let you do the thinking. ”

– Robert Fripp

Leave it to guitar sensei Fripp to crystallize an important concept in understanding anything: to define is to limit. I had never quite considered that.

And I see on Fripp’s blog a statement echoing my recent bit on Frank Zappa:

“The attitude that life owes us something, if not everything, encourages life to thwart our endeavours.”
