    I have a bad habit at university and not choosing good lines from the texts to back up my point or finding sources from the book to create better arguments, does anyone know of a better way? and to reference these arguments leading to analysis?

    Read first then make your point,then you re not trying to fit your evidence when it doesn't fit perfectly.

    How would I know which part of the text I should use to back up my point and use it in my essay to reference?
    I don't wanna quote stuff that doesn't back up my point or is not worth quoting/mentioning
