This is like the crescendo in a symphony of Solomon’s Wisdom in Ecclesiastes 9:

  1. We all end up dead.
  2. Being alive is better than being dead.
  3. We live unmemorable lives.
  4. Our emotions vanish with us.
  5. Enjoy life as God’s gift.
  6. Work, plan, learn, teach with all your might.
  7. Chance determines winners.
  8. No man knows when his hour will come.
  9. Wisdom is better than folly.
  10. Wisdom is better than weapons of war.
