For of the wise as of the fool there is w no enduring remembrance, seeing that in the days to come all will have been long forgotten. x How the wise dies just like the fool!
So I hated life, because what is done under the sun was grievous to me, for o all is vanity and a striving after wind.

There is no remembrance of former things, nor will there be any remembrance of later things yet to be among those who come after.
For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing, and they have no more reward, for the memory of them is forgotten.
The wise person has his eyes in his head, but the fool walks in darkness. And yet I perceived that the same event happens to all of them.
Then I considered all that my hands had done and the toil I had expended in doing it, and behold, all was vanity and a striving after wind, and there was nothing to be gained under the sun.
