“Everything is meaningless,” says the Teacher, “completely meaningless!” What do people get for all their hard work under the sun? Generations come and generations go, but the earth never changes. The sun rises and the sun sets, then hurries around to rise again. The wind blows south, and then turns north. Around and around it goes, blowing in circles. Rivers run into the sea, but the sea is never full. Then the water returns again to the rivers and flows out again to the sea. Everything is wearisome beyond description. No matter how much we see, we are never satisfied. No matter how much we hear, we are not content.
History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new. Sometimes people say, “Here is something new!” But actually it is old; nothing is ever truly new. We don’t remember what happened in the past, and in future generations, no one will remember what we are doing now. 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. To the place the streams come from, there they return again. 8 All things are wearisome, more than one can say. The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing. 9 What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. 10 Is there anything of which one can say, “Look! This is something new”? It was here already, long ago; it was here before our time. 11 No one remembers the former generations, and even those yet to come will not be remembered by those who follow them.
Storylines are created by the media. How is the focus not on the defense who allowed 10 and forced a 3 and out after a onside kick recovery and got the ball back when a first down would have ended the game.
"Nothing under the sun is truly new. " No one has ever posted those exact words in that exact pattern on this thread before. That poem is completely new to this thread. As long as there are people to find something new, it is new to us.
it is new for you, but it is certainly a few thousand years old. And you could have read it somewhere else. So nothing new about it. It is like saying the wheel is new because a new born baby never saw it before. It is new for him, but it isnt new at all.
Is anyone else having a problem editing their profile, like the quotes section and the website parts specifically? I've tried a few different times and I have gotten no error message, it just doesn't update it...
Was running through some moves on Realpolitik. Why is a fleet in GoB allowed to support a fleet from Norway to St. Pete(NC)? The GoB fleet doesnt touch the North Coast. Is there a different reason for why this is allowed?
Hi, Sorry to everyone in the Second Series of my informal gunboat games but could everyone please vote cancel? As per the discussion led by Babak and ulcabb in threadID=803223, it has been decided that all the games must be cancelled and the tournament restarted.
Sorry about this inconvenience. Thank you for your continued understanding through President Eden and Mr. Crispy's replacements.
