"Such nightmare Yarns we both have often writ, 
With goblin Whispers, and an Hint of IT"
H.P. Lovecraft, On The Thing In the Woods By Harper Williams 

"Out jumped the goblins, big goblins, great ugly-looking goblins, lots of goblins, before you could say rocks and blocks."

"Now goblins are cruel, wicked, and bad-hearted. They make no beautiful things, but they make clever ones." 
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

"In European folklore this is a grotesque, diminutive, and generally malicious earth spirit or sprite."
Carol Rose, Spirits, Fairies, Leprechauns and Goblins 

"Like other spirits they have human form, but no human ever wore expressions of such malicious mischief and depraved cunning. A goblin smile curdles the blood; a goblin laugh causes milk to sour and fruit to fall from trees. Even a witch will not allow a goblin at her fireside. She has no fear of it but it is always such a meddling nuisance."
Michael Page & Robert Ingpen, The Encyclopedia Of Things That Never Were
