The answer to this riddle is a memory. Everyone carries memories, and they can be a very big burden, especially if they're bad memories. When you try to remember something, a lot of times it "runs" from you, and when you try to escape a bad memory, it always comes back to haunt you. Memories can cause laughter or fear, or despair, or sorrow. And soon, when you die, the memories you have had will fade and never be found again. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

'I cannot read the fiery letters,' said Frodo in a quavering voice.
'No,' said Gandalf, 'but I can. The letters are Elvish, of an ancient mode, but the language is that of Mordor, which I will not utter here. But this in the Common Tongue is what is said, close enough:
One Ring to Bring them all and in the darkness bind them.'"

Here's a new, but don't forget the other:

I am a servant, faithfull, faithless,
I have killed many a person in many a place,
yes, many men have I murdered, but never have I been punished,
and yet do I leave an easy trace,
my bite kills faster than any venom,
in sunshine I brightly blaze,
but you may not see me,
when I am clothed in haze,
what am I?

Sounds good to me, but I'm just looking in, I mean, a sword would shine in the sun, and has killed many, but who can you think of that punishes their sword? Exactly. No one. So, my point is, I think Maikadilwen is right.

But now you have to solve this one before I make a new:

I have many fingers,
but no hands,
I go across the world,
to foregin lands,
yet do I not walk not run not fly,
I can be short and I can be high,
in many ways i help thee,
yet do you kill me,
what am I?

Time? Probably not, but what the heck. It's worth a try.

By the way:

I thought of that, but by the time I got there, the thread was very old, and I thought it had been forgotten. It's a good riddle though

O.K., This is from Riddle a day:

A man drove to the store. He got out, and accidentally locked his keys in the car. He went in the store, and bought some milk. He came back out and unlocked the door without touching "anything" on the outside of the car. How did he do it?

Easy. He reached through the open top and pulled the door handle up.

What's green and if it falls out of a tree will kill you?

Yup!

The car was a convertible and he reached inside to open the door.

I have no idea for the next one.

I am your companion,
follow you in the light,
but I'll be gone,
in the night,
you can not harm me,
with sword or knife,
I move beside the living,
but never have I life,

I think it is:

I am your companion,
follow you in the light,
but I'll be gone,
in the night,
you can not harm me,
with sword or knife,
I move beside the living,
but never have I life,
what am I?

If you figure out the last one you can try this one:

I have no legs or body or head,
and but one eye,
you never thank me,
but without me you would all die,
I never walk or run,
but move with haste,
in many places you want me,
but to many places I lay waste,
what am I?

Storm isn't correct. Maybe the haste is a bit missleading, you might think that it moves quite slow, keep guessing.
