Famous quotes containing the word shift:

    The term preschooler signals another change in our expectations of children. While toddler refers to physical development, preschooler refers to a social and intellectual activity: going to school. That shift in emphasis is tremendously important, for it is at this age that we think of children as social creatures who can begin to solve problems.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    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)

    You’ve just fulfilled the first role of law enforcement. Make sure when your shift is over you go home alive.
    David Mamet, U.S. screenwriter, and Brian DePlama. Jimmy Malone (Sean Connery)
