I thought that it would be great to share my favorite part of the Old
Testament with friends, to ponder the ephemeral convention of time.

Best wishes in the new year.
The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?
One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth
abideth for ever.
The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where
The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it
whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his
All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place
from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.

is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been
already of old time, which was before us.
There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any

cannot be numbered.
I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and
have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem:
yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.
And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I
perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.
For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge
