Ecclesiastes 1:2-0; Ecclesiastes 1:14
Smoke, nothing but smoke. [That's what the Quester says.] There's nothing to anything - it's all smoke.
What's there to show for a lifetime of work, a lifetime of working your fingers to the bone?
One generation goes its way, the next one arrives, but nothing changes - it's business as usual for old planet earth.
I've seen it all and it's nothing but smoke - smoke, and spitting into the wind.
