Famous quotes containing the word selected:

    There is no reason why parents who work hard at a job to support a family, who nurture children during the hours at home, and who have searched for and selected the best [daycare] arrangement possible for their children need to feel anxious and guilty. It almost seems as if our culture wants parents to experience these negative feelings.

And while she closed with a Scriptural flourish, he “hooked” a doughnut.
