I have in my document a paragraph that I want to keep in my tex source. But when generating the PDF, I don't want it to appear.

How can I hide a paragraph or a whole section ?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Perhaps have a look at some packages like verbatim (comment environment). –  ienissei Jul 3 '12 at 8:52
You can sandwich the paragraph or section with a conditional construct. –  kiss my armpit Jul 3 '12 at 8:53

You can put a % at the beginning of every line, or if there are no fancy if-constructs already in the code it is sometimes simpler to put

\iffalse

before the section and

\fi

after the section.

Or there are comment and other packages which give you comment environments if you would rather use an environment form.
