Ecclesiastes 1:2-0; Ecclesiastes 1:14
Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher, vanity of vanities! All is vanity.
What does man gain by all the toil at which he toils under the sun?
A generation goes, and a generation comes, but the earth remains for ever.
I have seen everything that is done under the sun; and behold, all is vanity and a striving after wind.
