Ecclesiastes 2:14-16 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
14 Wise people have eyes in their heads,
but fools walk in darkness.
Yet I knew that the same lot befalls both. 15 So I said in my heart, if the fool’s lot is to befall me also, why should I be wise? Where is the profit? And in my heart I decided that this too is vanity. 16 The wise person will have no more abiding remembrance than the fool; for in days to come both will have been forgotten. How is it that the wise person dies like the fool!
