In medieval times, when nearly everybody worked the land, the prick was a common tool for getting oxen to go faster. It was a pointed stick. If the oxen kicked the prick in annoyance it only made it go in deeper and hurt more. So to kick against the pricks is to rebel against authority but end up making life more difficult in the process. The phrase is also in the King James Version of The Bible. When Jesus blinded Saul of Tarsus (future Apostle Paul) he said "Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks." (Acts 9:5)

If a horses ears are slightly pinned back this means they are bored, but if they are flat against their neck this means they are irritated and can kick or bite. Another sign of a horse about to kick is if they stamp their hoof against the floor and wont move.

The team who the safety was against has to kick off to the team that scored the safety (free kick) from the 20 yard line. A free kick means that they can kick off using a tee, or they may punt the ball.

A goal kick is a different kick from a direct free kick or an indirect free kick. Your question appears to ask if a goal may be scored from a goal kick. Yes, it can, but only against the opponents. One cannot score an own-goal directly from a goal kick.

Foul refers to direct free kick offences. Any defender committing a foul against an attacker in the area results in a penalty kick. But, an attacker committing a foul against a defender would result in a direct free kick.
