Ecclesiastes 1:2-3; Ecclesiastes 1:14; Ecclesiastes 1:17
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?
I've seen it all and it's nothing but smoke - smoke, and spitting into the wind.
What I've finally concluded is that so-called wisdom and knowledge are mindless and witless - nothing but spitting into the wind.
