Ecclesiastes 2:13-14

MSG 13 But I did see that it's better to be smart than stupid, just as light is better than darkness. NIV 13 I saw that wisdom is better than folly, just as light is better than darkness. MSG 14 Even so, though the smart ones see where they're going and the stupid ones grope in the dark, they're all the same in the end. One fate for all - and that's it. NIV 14 The wise man has eyes in his head, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realize that the same fate overtakes them both.
