            A Reason Not to Worry What Others Think featuring Bruegel's Fall of Icarus ("We spend a little too much time worrying about how we must appear in the minds of others. However, the poignant, useful truth is that almost everyone doesn't care at all about who we are, what we're doing and how we've messed up.")

            About suffering they were never wrong,
            The Old Masters: how well they understood
            Its human position: how it takes place
            While someone else is eating or opening a window or just walking dully along;
            How, when the aged are reverently, passionately waiting
            For the miraculous birth, there always must be
            Children who did not specially want it to happen, skating
            On a pond at the edge of the wood:
            They never forgot
            That even the dreadful martyrdom must run its course
            Anyhow in a corner, some untidy spot
            Where the dogs go on with their doggy life and the torturer's horse
            Scratches its innocent behind on a tree.

            In Breughel's Icarus, for instance: how everything turns away
            Quite leisurely from the disaster; the ploughman may
            Have heard the splash, the forsaken cry,
            But for him it was not an important failure; the sun shone
            As it had to on the white legs disappearing into the green
            Water, and the expensive delicate ship that must have seen
            Something amazing, a boy falling out of the sky,
            Had somewhere to get to and sailed calmly on.
