This old one runs forever, but never moves at all. He has not lungs nor throat, but still a mighty roaring call.

Riddle: This old one runs forever, but never moves at all. He has not lungs nor throat, but still a mighty roaring call. What is it?

Another riddle with a lot of contradictory statements. Isn’t that the point of riddles anyway?

So let’s try to understand the answer together. Unless the river runs dry, it runs forever. However, its location is always the same. Waters move around, but if you look at the big picture, the river is always in the same place on the map. It can also make loud noises even though it doesn’t have a throat or lungs. Especially if the current is very strong! That’s why the answer is the river.

Answer:  A Waterfall.
