Ecclesiastes 2:14-16 Common English Bible (CEB)

14 The wise have eyes in their head,
    but fools walk around in darkness.

But I also realized that the same fate happens to both of them. 15 So I thought to myself, What happens to the fool will also happen to me. So why have I been so very wise? I said to myself, This too is pointless. 16 There is no eternal memory of the wise any more than the foolish,[a] because everyone is forgotten before long. How can the wise die just like the fool?
