If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content.

There was a certain man without a dependent, having neither a son nor a brother, yet there was no end to all his labor. Indeed, his eyes were not satisfied with riches [and he never asked], "And for whom am I laboring and depriving myself of pleasure?" This too is vanity and it is a grievous task.

He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves abundance [with its] income. This too is vanity.
When good things increase, those who consume them increase. So what is the advantage to their owners except to look on?
The sleep of the working man is pleasant, whether he eats little or much; but the full stomach of the rich man does not allow him to sleep.
There is a grievous evil [which] I have seen under the sun: riches being hoarded by their owner to his hurt.
When those riches were lost through a bad investment and he had fathered a son, then there was nothing to support him.
As he had come naked from his mother's womb, so will he return as he came. He will take nothing from the fruit of his labor that he can carry in his hand.
This also is a grievous evil-- exactly as a man is born, thus will he die. So what is the advantage to him who toils for the wind?
