Ecclesiastes 6:9-11 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

Better what the eyes see than wandering desire. This too is futile and a pursuit of the wind.[a]

10 Whatever exists was given its name long ago,[b] and it is known what mankind is. But he is not able to contend with the one stronger than he. 11 For when there are many words, they increase futility. What is the advantage for mankind?
