Riddles!!!
« on: August 29, 2011, 11:29:28 pm »
 ???I've always liked riddles. They're fun and they make you think. This is my favorite, see if you can figure it out without the help of google!

What does man value more than life,
and fear more than death and mortal strife
What the poor have
the rich require
and what contented men desire
What the mizer spends
and the spend thrift saves
and all men carry to their graves
???

also if you have any good ones i'd love to hear them!!!

OHOH I got this one.

The Answer is ...drumroll please *drum roll* Thank you.

NOTHING! :3

okay here's mine it's fairly simple.

In the marble walls as white as milk,
Lined with skin as soft as silk,
Within a fountain crystal clear,
A golden apple does appear.
No doors are there to this stronghold
Yet thieves break in and steal the gold.

Never said it was tied to anything, so the horse has nothing keeping it from eating the hay. Right?


A hill-full, a hole-full,
You cannot catch a bowl-full.

fog

The answere to this riddle has a hole in the middle
And some have been known to fall in it
In tenis it's nothing
But can be recived
And sometimes a person may win it
Though not seen or heard
It may yet be percived
Like princes or bees it's in clover
The answer to this riddle has a hole in the middle
And without it you can not start over
