What does man love more than life,
Hate more than death or mortal strife;
That which contented men desire,
The poor have, the Rich require;
The miser spends, the spendthrift saves,
And all men carry to their graves?

Yep. Easy.. Good though. But the first line of the riddle is incorrect.. I love zigthepig more than life. Not that I'm a man yet.. but I'm sure if I can love someone I've never met more than life, then surely there's a bunch of men who love a certain someone more than life. Therefore the first line to that riddle is wrong.

The lines about the poor and rich gave it away.
