Elena Maria Vidal has been posting articles on traditional fairy tales, and somehow this has inspired me to share my love of riddles. Here are a few, taken from Monika Beisner's illustrated book of riddles:

As long as I live, I eat,
But when I drink, I die.

The beginning of eternity,
The end of time and space,
The beginning of every end,
And the end of every place.

What has a mouth and does not eat?
What has a bed and does not sleep?
