Storyboard Text

  • There are some comments more dismissive and engaged. I wonder why and who wrote "Don't be a ninny" alongside a paragraph.
  • With writers like Kierkegaard and Conor Cruise O'Brien, my raging notes make it obvious I can not understand their logic!
  • As i annotate, i feel as though i'm conversing with the author; My notes argumentative, infuriated, and prevalent on every border.
  • Some readers scream short phrases from the sides like "Yes!" or "Absolutely!" to James Baldwin and Duns Scout. Their excitement races along the paper.
  • Students are modest, preferring only few thoughts on each page leaving their ideas frustratingly undecipherable in vague words on the page. They just note presence of "irony" or "metaphor" on the page.
  • If somehow you managed to complete college without writing "Man vs. Nature" in the columns, it's probably time to get deeper and closer to the readings. Be a little more insightful.
  • Everyone at one time or another has not sat lazily reading, but has engaged themselves in the text. We leave insight the way it ought to be done and leave our own imprint on the sides.
  • Even monks script and leave thought on their copying endeavors along borders of their Gospel, with birds chirping and sunlight capturing the pages. That written word of anonymous writers outlives us and leaves thoughts for people to ponder on for as long as the text lasts.
  • Some annotations are so captivating and abstract that they can never leave your side. Like the one i encountered in Catcher in the Rye as a teenager in the burning hot summer, imprinted on me like none other before it.
  • Some say without the furious annotations of Blake, you have not truly read or understood Joshua Reynolds.
  • One annotation follows me everywhere, pulling at my thought until days end. It was apparent to me a beautiful girl had scribbled in the margin.
  • She vastly deepened my loneliness and the world around me was clear. I connected with her, though we'd never meet, with one quote. "Pardon the egg salad stains, but I'm in love."
