What gets wetter and wetter the more it dries?

I travel the entire world but I always stay in one corner, what am I?

You have run into a troll who borrowed this riddle from Lord of the Rings:
"Voiceless it cries,
Wingless flutters,
Toothless bites,
Mouthless mutters."
What is it?

This famous riddle is from Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex.
What walks on four feet in the morning, two in the afternoon and three at night?

I am a building which one enters blind but leaves being able to see.

This riddle comes from the Hobbit:
“This thing all things devours;
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats mountain down.”
What is it?

From Harry Potter this riddle does come:
First think of the person who lives in disguise,
Who deals in secrets and tells naught but lies.
Next, tell me what’s always the last thing to mend,
The middle of middle and end of the end?
And finally give me the sound often heard
During the search for a hard-to-find word.
Now string them together, and answer me this,
Which creature would you be unwilling to kiss?

Finally, answer this original troll riddle:
"You see me in a book or perhaps from a Tweet
People wonder if I'm really made of meat
In the end, I just want to cause trouble
Perhaps you will burst my unruly bubble
If you can answer my riddles we'll see
Are you able to name what is me?"
