day no. 14,032: pleasure as an end will not be in the end

Ecclesiastes 2:10-11
10 And whatever my eyes desired I did not keep from them. I kept my heart from no pleasure, for my heart found pleasure in all my toil, and this was my reward for all my toil. 11 Then I considered all that my hands had done and the toil I had expended in doing it, and behold, all was vanity and a striving after wind, and there was nothing to be gained under the sun.
Pleasure can be pursued and purchased as an end in itself, but meaning and depth can never be gleaned from it when it's acquired in that manner.
