One wonderfully handy tool in OneNote is the ability to extract words from a picture.
Take this image for example, a random motivational quote I found on Google.
Quote: YOUR MIND IS A POWERFUL THING. WHEN YOU FILL IT. POSITIVE! THOUGHTS, YOUR LIFE WILL START TO CHANGE.

Here is what it gave me:
IS A POWERFUL
YOUR LIFE WILL
