“A Vampire!" I stammered. Then I noticed her legs. Below the cheerleader skirt, her left leg was brown and shaggy with a donkey's hoof. Her right leg was shaped like a human leg was it was made of bronze. "Uhh, a vampire with-"
"Don't mention the legs!" Tammi snapped. "It's rude to make fun.”
Rick Riordan, The Battle of the Labyrinth

Tessa Dare
“What happened?"
"This happened." He shifted his arms to reveal a bundle of tiny, knobby joints and fluffy patches of black and white.
A newborn goat.
"Oh, my goodness." She knelt behind him, peering over his shoulder. "Surely not Marigold?"
"I told you so," he said irritably.
As if she'd be intimidated by gruff words from a man cradling a newborn goat in his arms. She'd always known he had a capacity for gentleness.
I told you so, too.
She reached to stroke the little goat's fur.
Gabriel's shoulder muscle flinched in annoyance. "My shirt was ruined, I'll have you know. Completely unsalvageable. And then this runtish little thing wouldn't stop shivering."
"Would it help if I told you that I've never found you so wildly attractive as I do in this moment?"
"No.”
Tessa Dare, The Wallflower Wager

Michael Ben Zehabe
“Zoe rubbed her forehead and grimaced. “America is one toll booth after another. In Noshahr I could park anything in front of our compound, but not in free America. I tried to buy a goat to roast. I am not going to tell you the trouble that caused.”
“You can’t roast goat in America?”
“You can roast,” Zoe said, “but there are certain rules about goats. And it made the neighborhood children cry. The details are too tedious for the telephone.”
Michael Benzehabe

Mervyn Peake
“One thing at a time,' said the Boy. 'You must be patient. This is a day of hope and wild revenge. Do not interrupt me. I am a courier from another world. I bring you golden words.

Listen!' said the Boy. 'Where I come from there is no more fear. But there is a roaring and a bellowing and a cracking of bones. And sometimes there is silence when, lolling on your thrones, your slaves adore you.”
Mervyn Peake, Boy in Darkness and Other Stories

Eva Stachniak
“If a tree is bent, every goat will jump on it.”
Eva Stachniak, The Winter Palace: A Novel of Catherine the Great

Terry Pratchett
“When Geoffrey was away, the goat often took himself off. He had soon got the goats at Granny’s cottage doing his bidding, and Nanny Ogg said once that she had seen what she called ‘that devil goat’ sitting in the middle of a circle of feral goats up in the hills. She named him ‘The Mince of Darkness’ because of his small and twinkling hooves, and added, ‘Not that I don’t like him, stinky as he is. I’ve always been one for the horns, as you might say. Goats is clever. Sheep ain’t. No offence, my dear.”
Terry Pratchett, The Shepherd's Crown

H.H. Laura
“You came up this gut-wrenching road yesterday by yourself?" Cassie exclaimed. "You deserve a good cuffing just for driving this goat path on your own."
"It's not so bad once you get used to dodging the ruts."
"You've got some nerve calling these canyons ruts."
"Cassandra Hudson, where is your sense of adventure?"
"I dropped it off going over that last rut-crossing when only two wheels were on the ground."
"Those ones are a bit exhilarating, aren't they?" Alexandra shot Cassie a quick look and wink. 
"Keep your eyes on the road!"
"What road?"
"Exactly!”
H.H. Laura, Larkspur

Cassandra Clare
“Roderick Morgenstern, who Magnus thought truly deserved to have a name that sounded like a goat chewing gravel, stood up happily to continue his speech.”
Cassandra Clare, The Bane Chronicles

Tessa Dare
“She set the kid on the floor, and George gamboled about the room, making high-pitched, chirping bleats. "He prances. Sideways. It's adorable."
The kid attempted to admit it was rather adorable. Especially the way the newborn goat made its way to him from across the room, stopping at his boots to issue an entitled bleat. He was a demanding little thing already.
Gabe bent to give the kid a scratch between the ears.”
Tessa Dare, The Wallflower Wager

“Wait, I’ve got a billion years because the Klassik is GOAT.
[In the song ' Who is the Badman Killa?']”
DON SANTO

Israelmore Ayivor
“You don’t expect the goat to hatch the hen’s eggs. People do what they know very well. Don’t expect someone who doesn’t know what you know to do it for you. Do it yourself.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Shaping the dream

Will Advise
“IQ's are a combination of eyes, and queues. Would you wait in line to see my goat show? Of course you wouldn't, because the line is invisible.”
Will Advise, Nothing is here...

Neil Gaiman
“Our word Tragedy comes from the Greek, tragos-ode: “The song of the goat.” Anybody who has ever heard a goat attempt to sing will know why.”
Neil Gaiman, Adventures in the Dream Trade

Delilah S. Dawson
“Rubbing the place where a headache was brewing, Toby said, “You may keep whatever parts of the goat you wish. I just want this farm boy’s heart.”
“So the rest of him is up for grabs?”
“The rest of the goat?”
“No, the rest of the…yeah, the goat. The goat. Good eating, goat.”
Delilah S. Dawson, Kill the Farm Boy

Anthony Ryan
“Power comes at a price, love," Veliss replied through bared teeth, maintaining the smile she offered to the townsfolk lining the square.
"What power?"
"All power. The power to rule, to kill, or, in your case this fine morning, the power to incite the lust of the old goat you're about to meet."
"Lust? I have no desire to incite lust in anyone."
Veliss turned to her with a quizzical expression, her smile suddenly genuine. "Then I'm afraid you're in for a lifetime of disappointment.”
Anthony Ryan, Queen of Fire

Mehmet Murat ildan
“Look carefully at the goat sitting on the edge of the cliff: Everything that shows you the peace of being fearless is a great teacher for you! That goat is a teacher for you, respect him!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Lucian of Samosata
“He once saw two philosophers engaged in a very unedifying game of cross questions and crooked answers. ‘Gentlemen,’ said he, ‘here is one man milking a billy-goat, and another catching the proceeds in a sieve.”
Lucian of Samosata

Katherine Applegate
“We are like a cow and a goat,
wanting to be friends
but wondering if it
can ever be.”
Katherine Applegate, Home of the Brave

Cassie Beasley
“I don't think you're supposed to call him Mr. Goat" Tumble's dad replied "I think it's just Goat. Like Cher! But less well know."

"I refuse to call a grown man Goat."

"Well, I'm going to call home Goat," said Tumble. " He told me to."
The name wasn't exactly classy like Tumble or Maximal Star, but it showed an individual nature.”
Cassie Beasley, Tumble & Blue
