For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow

from Holy Bible (KJV) – Ecclesiastes 1 on Rap Genius

Meaning

Even being the wisest person in the world will not escape you of your problems nor make you content with your life. There are consequences in every earthly decision we make. We may strive for happiness in this world all we like but we will never be able to find it unless we find God.

The world can not offer you true happiness.

Take Michael Jackson for an example. This man had all the fame in the world, but was he content with his life? Hell No! — He died from a drug overdose. He also chemically bleached his skin as he was self-conscious of his physical appearance due to vitiligo, Michael originally had dark sin. He also had numerous other plastic surgery operations on his face. From this we can tell that Michael, despite all the money he had, was never 100% happy with his life.
