That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered. — Ecclesiastes 1:15 (KJV)
The morning routine in the movie, American Psycho, narrated with the Book of Ecclesiastes (KJV):
1:3—What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?
3:20–All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
1:5—The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.
3:21–Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?
5:15–As he came forth of his mother’s womb, naked shall he return to go as he came, and shall take nothing of his labour, which he may carry away in his hand.
5:17–All his days also he eateth in darkness, and he hath much sorrow and wrath with his sickness.
6:4—For he cometh in with vanity, and departeth in darkness, and his name shall be covered with darkness.
3:10–I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.
9:2—All things come alike to all: there is one event to the righteous, and to the wicked; to the good and to the clean, and to the unclean; to him that sacrificeth, and to him that sacrificeth not: as is the good, so is the sinner; and he that sweareth, as he that feareth an oath.
7:13–Consider the work of God: for who can make that straight, which he hath made crooked?
1:9—The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
3:18–I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.
3:19–For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.
8:7—For he knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be?
9:16–Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor man’s wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.
7:14–In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.
12:8–Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity.
