"Don't go towards the sun," they said. "you'll fall to your death"
So Icarus stayed low
"Don't go towards the sea," they said. "you'll down and stay in the ocean forever"

Once he reached the sun, he smiled. For even though he would fall, Apollo in his golden chariot smiled down at him in admiration from the heavens.
And as the wax melted and he plummeted towardsthe earth, he closed his eyes and enjoyed the view.
