Ecclesiastes 4:4; Ecclesiastes 4:6; Ecclesiastes 4:16 (English Standard Version)
Then I saw that all toil and all skill in work come from a man's envy of his neighbor. This also is vanity and a striving after wind.
Better is a handful of quietness than two hands full of toil and a striving after wind.
There was no end of all the people, all of whom he led. Yet those who come later will not rejoice in him. Surely this also is vanity and a striving after wind.
