OXEN
[ Also see Animals Mammals ]

The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.
      - Bible, Isaiah (ch. I, v. 3)

He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;
  Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.
      - Bible, Proverbs (ch. VII, v. 22)

Who drives fat oxen should himself be fat.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature"),
        Boswell's Life of Johnson

And the plain ox,
  That harmless, honest, guileless animal,
    In what has he offended? he whose toil,
      Patient and ever ready, clothes the land
        With all the pomp of harvest.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons
