There is Nothing New Under The Sun

November 25th, 2012 · No Comments · Christianity, Religion

That which has been is what will be,
That which is done is what will be done,
And there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there anything of which it may be said,
“See, this is new”?
It has already been in ancient times before us.
There is no remembrance of former things,
Nor will there be any remembrance of things that are to come
By those who will come after. —Ecclesiastes 1:9-11 (New King James translation)

Quoted in “The Signal and the Noise: The Art and Science of Prediction” – Nate Silver
