Well, I've heard it before and already know the answer, so it wouldn't exactly be fair, now would it?

If you insist:

I am the begining of eternity, and the end of time and space. The begining of every end and the end of every place, what am I?




Here's something original. As such, it is hard to gauge difficulty. Hopefully it won't be too much of a challenge.



My brothers and I stand between the knowledges and fantasies of myriad cultures. If you impress us, we will proclaim the workings of your heart to any who might comprehend them, or at your initial whim remain hidden and quiet. Once free, we are difficult to rein in. Our fragile lives require care and respect, lest we forever degenerate into unintelligibility. Although many of us may rise again, born anew, past lives are always irretrievably forgotten.

What am I?

I say a book because:
Books on a bookshelf
getting a book published or keeping it as a diary
The breaking down into unitelligibility is easy, just look at some old books and how hard the text can be to read. The second part is a bit harder. The only way I could come up with would be if you recycled books.

Edit* thought of this right after posting*
A newspaper is starting to make more sense to me because:
International news
Either not allowing the newspaper printers to hear about your story or clipping the story out and keeping it
It is difficult to keep newspaper stories from circling. Finally, newspapers turn yellowish after only a couple of months, and news paper is definatly recycled more often that books. It is a newspaper.

Bingo ^_^

The intended answer was a page of a book or a piece of paper.





How difficult would you guys say that one was? Does this answer seem to fit better than the others?
