Page 189 - I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill ; but time and chance happeneth to them all.
Page 76 - All the rivers run into the sea ; yet the sea is not full ; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
