“Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself? Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time? For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not” (Ecclesiastes 7:16-17, 20).

“Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart; for God now accepteth thy works. For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest” (Ecclesiastes 9:7, 5 10).
“For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?” (Psalm 6:5).
