Ecclesiastes 4:6 One handful of peace and quiet is better than two handfuls of hard work and of trying to catch the wind.Ecclesiastes 4:8 There are people who are all alone. They have no children or other family members. So there is no end to all the hard work they have to do. Their eyes are never satisfied with riches. But [they never ask themselves] why they are working so hard and depriving themselves of good things. Even this is pointless and a terrible tragedy.
