Meaningless! Meaningless!”
says the Teacher.
“Utterly meaningless!
Everything is meaningless.”

I said to myself, “Come now, I will test you with pleasure to find out what is good.” But that also proved to be meaningless.

I denied myself nothing my eyes desired;
I refused my heart no pleasure.
My heart took delight in all my labor,
and this was the reward for all my toil.
11 Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done
and what I had toiled to achieve,
everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind;
nothing was gained under the sun.

There is a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing.

There is nothing new under the sun.
