There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.
And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters.
His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses

...the Elders all began to tell stories at once of Hebrew heroes and animal help: Abraham's ram, Balaam's ass, Jacob's lion, Samson's bees. Job's entire managerie, including the horse that danced and crieth among the trumpets 'Aha!'*

"Here are we -- you, Pooh, and you, Piglet, and Me -- and suddenly "
"And Eeyore," said Pooh.
"And Eeyore -- and then suddenly -- "
"And Owl," said Pooh
"And Owl -- and then all of a sudden -- "
"Oh, and Eeyore," said Pooh. "I was forgetting him."
"Here -- we -- are," said Rabbit very slowly and carefully, all -- or -- us, and then, suddenly, we wake up one morning, and what do we find? We find a Strange Animal among us. An animal of whom we had never even heard before! An animal who carries her family about with her in her pocket! Suppose I carried my family about with me in my pocket, how many pockets should I want?"
"Sixteen," said Piglet.
"Seventeen, isn't it?" said Rabbit. "And one more for a handkerchief -- that's eighteen. Eighteen pockets in one suit! I haven't time."
