I imagine a lot and sometimes I overlook the reality.

So here goes the riddle.

Who can be bigger than the universe,

and yet Who can be contained in a atom.

Who can be as sweet as honey,

and yet Who can be as sour as lemon.

Who can be as almighty as the God,

and yet who can be as devilish as the Satan.

About whom am I talking about?

    $\begingroup$ I know. I have seen some of your previous good quality questions before. And that's why asked it in comment :) $\endgroup$ – AeJey May 22 '17 at 14:43
  • $\begingroup$ @prog_SAHIL Is it "Desire" correct? $\endgroup$ – CR241 May 22 '17 at 14:59

    $\begingroup$ @prog_SAHIL Also, I hope the intended answer is not - a lie/a metaphor/a pun/a mystery/unknown/ etc cause most of them fit here. $\endgroup$ – Techidiot May 22 '17 at 15:00

You are about:

Horton Hears a Who!

Bigger than the Universe, can be contained in an atom

It's a planet in a speck of dust, clearly having indefinable size

Sweet and Sour

The sour kangaroo incident is fixed with "Beezle" oil (sweet honey, presumably)

Almighty as God, devilish as Satan

Horton carries around a planet. That's almighty, for sure. The speck in which the planet resides is stolen by and eagle and dropped into a cloverfield. That's rather devilish.

Maybe not a perfect match, but it feels right.

Are you talking about

The word/noun/pronoun - Who

Explanation

I'm not sure if it's even valid, but it looks like the riddle is specifying a quality of the word who which as confirmed by OP in the comments is ment to be treated as noun.
