Anyone knows what is the best way to put border around certain sentences?

Thank you for your help.

    What have you got so far? Please provide some code. Your tags suggest you are using TikZ for it. What's the problem exactly?

    You can use this one tex.stackexchange.com/questions/282386/… or other options in soul package.

  • I used a picture editor to achieve what appears in the picture. It will be great if I can do it in latex. The book will be published in black and white so I cannot use the suggestion proposed by @percusse Commented Dec 18, 2016 at 15:42
  • @FaisalMustafa - obtaining a frame automatically would seem very difficult. Maybe some advanced LuaTeX hackery could achieve it, but I'm not certain. Alternatives: 1. even with b/w, you can use background color - a light gray should be o.k., if used judiciously and not all over the place; 2. font color (black vs gray) - might be easier on the eyes; 3. different font shapes.

  • Your publisher can convert it to B&W and make it gray.
