Famous quotes containing the word shift:

    There is a certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse; as I have found in travelling in a stage- coach, that it is often a comfort to shift one’s position and be bruised in a new place.
    Washington Irving (1783–1859)

    I will use the world and sift it,
    To a thousand humors shift it,
    As you spin a cherry.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Let us not be dainty of leave-taking,
    But shift away.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
