The more the words, the less the meaning, and how does that profit anyone?
For there are many words which increase futility. What then is the advantage to a man?
The more words you speak, the less they mean. So why overdo it?
The more words that are spoken, the more smoke there is in the air. And who is any better off?
There are words without number for increasing what is to no purpose, but what is man profited by them?
The more words, the more vanity, so how is one the better?
Since there are many things that increase vanity, How is man the better?
