The book of Ecclesiastes.

I know it's part of the Bible but even If you're an atheist or muslim you should read this from a philosophical point of view. Here's some quotes.

3 What do people gain from all their labors
at which they toil under the sun?
4 Generations come and generations go,
but the earth remains forever.
5 The sun rises and the sun sets,
and hurries back to where it rises.
6 The wind blows to the south
and turns to the north;
round and round it goes,
ever returning on its course.
7 All streams flow into the sea,
yet the sea is never full.

16 I said to myself, "Look, I have increased in wisdom more than anyone who has ruled over Jerusalem before me; I have experienced much of wisdom and knowledge." 17 Then I applied myself to the understanding of wisdom, and also of madness and folly, but I learned that this, too, is a chasing after the wind.

18 For with much wisdom comes much sorrow;
the more knowledge, the more grief.


Here's the first chapter: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ecclesiastes+1&version=NIV

I know this thread will get either hate or trolls and only few will read this but I thought it was worth sharing so I made a thread about it.

A lot of things written in the Bible is worth sharing though, even to atheists. Whether they believe in God or not, you can't just totally deny words of wisdom like that when obviously it is written for a good cause. Whether you believe in God or not you can still learn things from the Bible.

That's why I skip class, drink 40s, and blast Waka Flocka 24/7. Thank you Jesus.
