“The starting point for your own words”

Always read with a pen in hand. The pen should be used both to mark the text you want to remember and to write from where the text leaves you. Think of the text as the starting point for your own words.

– Mandy Brown

Lately I’ve been building a webpage to show random quotes from quotesondesign.com. (This is an exercise from FreeCodeCamp which I’ve done as a codepen: codepen.io/jmalk/full/MyPgmq.) While testing, it throws a lot of great quotes at me, like this little gem from Mandy Brown. You can read it and similar reflections on their website.
