Ecclesiastes 4:4-6 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)

Then I saw that all toil and all skill in work come from one person’s envy of another. This also is vanity and a chasing after wind.[a]

Fools fold their hands
    and consume their own flesh.
Better is a handful with quiet
    than two handfuls with toil,
    and a chasing after wind.[b]
