    3 Men sit down for a game of cards. One is a father to a man at the table but not a son to anyone at the table. The other two are fathers at the table, but only one is the son of the Father who isn't a Son of a man at the table. Everyone who has a son has a son at the table. But not every son at the table has his father at the table.

    How is this possible?

    A girl was 8 before she was 7.

    When you have me, you feel like sharing me. But, if you do share me, you don't have me. What am I?
    2 fathers and 2 sons go fishing. Each of them catches one fish. So why do they bring home only 3 fish?
    From what I can figure, 1 is a Pop, who had a son. Who is the father to his son also at the table.

    This thing all things devours:
    Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
    Gnaws iron, bites steel;
    Grinds hard stones to meal;
    Slays king, ruins town,
    And beats high mountain down.

    What has roots as nobody sees,
    Is taller than trees
    Up, up it goes,
    And yet never grows?

    Alive without breath,
    As cold as death;
    Never thirsty, ever drinking,
    All in mail never clinking

    It cannot be seen, cannot be felt,
    Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt.
    It lies behind stars and under hills,
    And empty holes it fills.
    It comes first and follows after,
    Ends life, kills laughter.

    Thirty white horses on a red hill,
    First they champ,
    Then they stamp,
    Then they stand still.

    A box without hinges, key or lid,
    Yet golden treasure inside is hid.

    What does man love more than life?
    Fear more than death or mortal strife?
    What do the poor have, what the rich require,
    And what contented men desire?
    What does the miser spend, the spendthrift save,
    And all men carry to their graves?

    A secret?

    It's a grandfather, his son, and his grandson.

    The grandfather and his son count as 2 fathers, the son and grandson counts a 2 sons. 1 fish each = 3 fish

    Nothing

    As for the rest I'll leave out, seeing as I know the origin ;)

    The answer to my previous riddle was that there are 4 people at the table. A Boy, His father, His Grandfather, and his Great Grandfather. Saying that there were 3 Men was the misleading tell. 3 Men and a Boy, all related.

    You can read it but not see it. Hear it but not say it. And you can never touch it no matter how often or deeply it touches you.

    What is it?

    I was going to go with feelings... but you can't really hear feelings.

    So I think I'm going to go with Music? You can read music but cannot actually physically see it. You can hear it, but can't say it because you have to sing or play music. And music can touch you emotionally even though it has no physical presence of it's own for you to touch.
