History Boys

The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone who is even long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.
-Alan Bennett's The History Boys

I just saw the movie version. I don't know if I liked it all that much. It's a bit of Dead Poet's Society meets Doubt. Anyway, it is a very quotable script none-the-less.

A to the S grade: B
Teacher Comments: Decent work, but please speak more clearly in the future.
