Also, here is a course of Shakespeare:
“Friends, Goatmans, countrymen, lend me your ears!
I come to bury the goat, not to praise him.”
And:

FIRST FAIRY: You spotted goats with double tongue,
Thorny hedgehogs, be not seen...
From Goatius Caesar and A Midsummer Goat’s Dream.

And J.M.Barrie's famous opening sentence: "All goats, except one, grow up." :lol:
Also a famous saying; “Tell the goat, The whole goat, and nothing but the goat.”
2 Timothy 1:7. Look it up.
Major life things happening now, therefore I am unable to do LV much. :( Please be patient with delayed projects.

"My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
Look on my goats, ye Mighty, and despair!"
- Shelley

"Tyger Tyger burning bright,
In the forests of the night:
What immortal hand or goat,
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?"
- Blake

"If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a goat, my son!"
- Kipling

“I hope she'll be a goat -- that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little goat.”
- Fitzgerald

"Thou shalt not suffer a goat to live."
- Exodus 22:18

...and of course, ol' Lovecraft has all kinds of gems for this:

"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its goats."

"That is not dead which can eternal lie, And with strange aeons even goats may die."

"Almost nobody dances sober, unless they happen to be goats."

“All we have to decide is what to do with the goat that is given us.”
-J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

And now was acknowledged the presence of the red goat.
It had come, like a goat in the night.
...
And darkness and decay and the red goat held illimitable dominion over all.

And Caesar's spirit, raging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice
Cry "Havoc!" and let slip the goats of war,
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial.
Wow, saying "goats" makes it ridiculous -- whereas goats can be creepy (as in the devil's incarnation).
But saying "dogs" makes it creepy -- whereas dogs themselves are often ridiculous.

Now that winter is approaching I am reminded of the immortal words of one R. Frost:

Whose goats these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his goats fill up with snow.

Midway this way of life we're bound upon,
I woke to find myself in a dark goat,
Where the right road was wholly lost and gone.

And...

NOTHING ERE I WAS MADE WAS MADE TO BE
SAVE THINGS ETERNE, AND I ETERNE ABIDE;
LAY DOWN ALL GOATS, YOU THAT GO IN BY ME.
