This code:

(add-to-list 'load-path
             (expand-file-name "/usr/share/emacs21/site-lisp/emacs-goodies-el"))
is wrong

And this one as Peter told you is wrong also:

(require 'emacs-goodies)

You have to add to load-path a directory and not a file
You have to require a name of file without the extension (what is in
provide at the end of this file) and not a directory.
