Readings / Teaching: Richard Kamischke

The Schofield Kid: [after killing a man for the first time] It don’t seem real… how he ain’t gonna never breathe again, ever… now he’s dead. And the other one too. All on account of pulling a trigger.
Will Munny: It’s a hell of a thing, killing a man. Take away all he’s got and all he’s ever gonna have.
The Schofield Kid : Yeah, well, I guess they had it coming.
Will Munny : We all got it coming, kid.
Unforgiven (1992)

Everything Is Meaningless
1The words of the Teacher, son of David, king in Jerusalem:
2“Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher.
“Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless.”
3What do people gain from all their labors
at which they toil under the sun?
4Generations come and generations go,
but the earth remains forever.
5The sun rises and the sun sets,
and hurries back to where it rises.
Ecclesiastes 1:1-5
