SHEEP
[ Also see Animals Lambs Mammals ]

A black sheep is a biting beast.
      - Thomas Bastard, Chrestoleros (p. 90)

It would be equally reasonable to say that sheep are born carnivorous, and everywhere nibble grass.
      - Emile Faguet,
        said in response to Rousseau, i.e., man being born free, but everywhere in chains

She walks--the lady of my delight--
  A sheperdess of sheep.
    Her flocks are thoughts. She keeps them white;
      She guards them from the steep.
        She feeds them on the fragrant height,
          And folds them in for sleep.
      - Alice Christiana Meynell (Mrs. Alice Thompson),
        The Lady of the Lambs

A leap year
  Is never a good sheep year.
      - Old English Saying

The mountain sheep are sweeter,
  But the valley sheep are fatter.
    We therefore deemed it meeter
      To carry off the latter.
      - Thomas Love Peacock,
        The Misfortune of Elphin--The War-Song of Dinas Vawr
