What profit hath a man of all his labor 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 he arose.
The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it 
whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to 
his circuits.
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.
All things are full of labor; man cannot utter it: the eye is not 
satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which 
is done 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 
remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.
