Adorned with wings of feather and wax, poor Icarus was warned not to fly too low (complacency) nor too high (hubris) by his father, Daedulus, the inventor of the wings. Sadly, Icarus flew too high and the sun melted his wings. Had he flown too low the moisture from the sea would have clogged his wings. Either case means the end of his flight.
Don’t pull an Icarus.
