What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?4
One generation passeth away , and another generationcometh : but the earthabideth for ever.5
The sun also ariseth , and the sun goeth down , and hastetha to his place where he arose .
The windgoeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually , and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.7
All the riversrun into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the riverscome , thither they returnbagain .
All things are full of labour;mancannotutter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing , nor the earfilled with hearing .
The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done : and there is no new thing under the sun.10
Is there any thing whereof it may be said , See , this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.
