    Also "nothing".

    If you had nothing, and shared some with lots of other people, you'd still have nothing.

    EDIT : Just realized that this is actually a whole lot of "not sharing".

    Anything physical that you yourself cannot take away (e.g. Building, Sculptures, Trees etc.)

    But everyone has thoughts, I am looking for something more qualitative :)

    Qualitative comes from quality.
    Quality has relations to Quantity
    Quantity is in connection with Demands and Supplies
    Demands and Supplies come from Customers and Manufacturers
    They get balanced at Saturated Point
    Saturated Point means Both get Satisfied
    When Satisfied is mentioned,
    Job, Love and Money can be of great help for man.
    I should have guessed it was only love♥ anyway

    The question is probably too open ended :biggrin:

    Knowledge

    Knowledge you can give to other people, but you won't loose any by doing so :smile:

    The phrase "all for yourself" is distracting. It makes it sound exclusive (I still have this but nobody else actually gets it).

    I would answer "my identity". I could share my identity (actually, acquaintance with my identity) with other people, but it still remains exclusively mine. If someone else tries to assume it, it is just a fraud.

    well i think i just missed this one. bcoz i know that if i say that i knew the answer myself then nobody will believe me, but i can tell you that this is a very common riddle around here, infact i remember this one right from my childhood days.

    but i am really surprised that all you people can think so wayward as i expected it to be answered by most of you
