21. Ecclesiastes. Death and judgment are the only fixed realities in life, and everything else is uncertain and often subject to frustration and sorrow. The Book of Ecclesiastes is attributed to Solomon and is a biography that examines the meaning of life. One of his conclusions is that all of men's actions are essentially transitory and meaningless. Therefore one should enjoy life's simple pleasures including work which is God's gift to humans. The author's final conclusion on life's meaning however is the most noteworthy: Fear God and keep his commandment for that is the whole duty of everyone (Eccl 12:13).
