Everything is Meaningless
Ecclesiastes 1: 1 -
The words of the Teacher, son of David, king of Jerusalem:
'Meaningless! Meaningless!' says the Teacher. 'Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless.'
Better one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind.

I said: 'I am determined to be wise' - but this was beyond me.
