Riddles 3

1.   If you break me
I do not stop working,
If you touch me
I may be snared,
If you lose me
Nothing will matter.

2.   Lighter than what
I am made of,
More of me is hidden
Than is seen.

3.   Each morning I appear
To lie at your feet,
All day I will follow
No matter how fast you run,
Yet I nearly perish
In the midday sun.

4.  My life can be measured in hours,
I serve by being devoured.
Thin, I am quick
Fat, I am slow
Wind is my foe

4.   My life can be measured in hours,
I serve by being devoured.
Thin, I am quick
Fat, I am slow
Wind is my foe

5.   What does man love more than life
Fear more than death or mortal strife
What the poor have, the rich require,
and what contented men desire,
What the miser spends and the spendthrift saves
And all men carry to their graves?

6.    You saw me where I never was and where I could not be. And yet within that very  place, my face you often see. What am I?

7.    What is it that after you take away the whole, some still remains?

8.   I can be long, or I can be short.
I can be grown, and I can be bought.
I can be painted, or left bare.
I can be round, or square.
What am I?

9.   Every dawn begins with me
At dusk I’ll be the first you see
And daybreak couldn’t come without
What midday centers all about
Daises grow from me, I’m told
And when I come, I end all cold
But in the sun I won’t be found
Yet still, each day I’ll be around

10. There is one word that stands the test of time and holds fast to the center of   everything.  Though everyone will try at least once in their life to move around this word, but in fact, unknowingly, they use it every moment of the day. Young or old, awake or in sleep, human or animal, this word stands fast. It belongs to everyone, to all living things, but no one can master it.   The word is?
