WE INVENT WHAT WE MAKE!
In Greek mythology, Icarus (Ancient Greek: Ἴκαρος, pronounced as ˈi-kə-rəs) was the son of the master craftsman Daedalus, creator of the Labyrinth. Icarus and his father attempted to escape from Crete by means of wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax. Daedalus tried his wings first, but before trying to escape the island, he asked his son to follow his flight path and warned him not to fly too high close to the sun, or too low close to the sea. Overcome by the giddiness that flying lent him, Icarus soared into the sky flying higher and faster. As he got closer to the sun, heat melted the wax in his wings and they disintegrated. He tumbled out of the sky and fell into the sea where he drowned becoming a legend of flight and a first victim of passion and eternal desire to fly higher and faster. Today the area where he drowned bears his name, the Icarian Sea near Icaria, an island southwest of Samos, Greece.
The wonders of innovation, and thoughtful wisdom of knowledge and experience are both applied to what we invent and everything we make.
