A while ago AOM had a trivia group that played a game where one asked a question and who ever got the answer first was allowed to pick the next trivia question. Maybe we could do that with riddles in this thread?

time?

When there is fire in me then I am still cold;
When I own your true love's face then you will not see me;
To all things I give no more than I am given;
In time I may have all things and yet I may keep nothing.

Required Reading

There's a similar thread right now but it's bizarre and spammy. So. What, in your opinion, is required reading to be part of the human race? What is absolutely essential, whether it be philosophy, history, religion, or even classic fiction or poetry?See More
