The Most Highlighted Kindle Quotes of All Time

At Iris Reading, we’ve posted a few times about how researchers are finding that paperback books are better for you than e-readers. This may be the case, but when it comes to bookmarking a section or highlighting a sentence, it is a lot easier with an e-reader. You can find it quickly, and if one thing is for sure, dogearing a page in a book is a crime against literature! With this new way of saving important information, e-readers and Kindles can report the most highlighted quotes of all time! Here is a sampling for what readers in a variety of genres feel are the most important passages to remember from their favorite reads.

Business and management

“Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.” – The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen R. Covey

“‘Studies have shown that performance gets worse as group size increases: groups of nine generate fewer and poorer ideas compared to groups of six, which do worse than groups of four. The ‘evidence from science suggests that business people must be insane to use brainstorming groups,’ writes the organizational psychologist Adrian Furnham. ‘If you have talented and motivated people, they should be encouraged to work alone when creativity or efficiency is the highest priority.'” – Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, Susan Cain

“How are you first, only, faster, better, or cheaper than other people who want to do what you’re doing in the world? What are you offering that’s hard to come by? What are you offering that’s both rare and valuable?” – The Start-up of You: Adapt to the Future, Invest in Yourself, and Transform Your Career, Reid Hoffman and Ben Casnocha

“Step three: Set a deadline on your goal; set subdeadlines if necessary. A goal or decision without a deadline has no urgency. It has no real beginning or end. Without a definite deadline accompanied by the assignment or acceptance of specific responsibilities for completion, you will naturally procrastinate and get very little done. Step four: Make a list of everything that you can think of that you are going to have to do to achieve your goal.” – Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time, Brian Tracy


“Neuroscientists have discovered that when you ask the brain to meditate, it gets better not just at meditating, but at a wide range of self-control skills, including attention, focus, stress management, impulse control, and self-awareness. People who meditate regularly aren’t just better at these things. Over time, their brains become finely tuned willpower machines. Regular meditators have more gray matter in the prefrontal cortex, as well as regions of the brain that support self-awareness.” The Willpower Instinct, Kelly McGonigal

“Keep your best wishes, close to your heart and watch what happens.” – Legacy: The Power Within, Tony DeLiso


“I choose my friends for their good looks, my acquaintances for their good characters, and my enemies for their good intellects.” – The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde

“I have no data yet. It is a capital mistake to theorise before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts” – The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

“Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.” – Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen


“What is childlike humility? It’s not the lack of intelligence, but the lack of guile. The lack of an agenda. It’s that precious, fleeting time before we have accumulated enough pride or position to care what other people might think.” – Heaven is for Real, Todd Burpo, Sonja Burpo, Colton Burpo

“Home is where the heart begins, but not where the heart stays.” – They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us, Hanif Abdurraqib


“Ultrasonography to assess for abdominal aortic aneurysm is recommended (Level B) for men aged 65 to 75 years who have ever smoked.” – Case Files Family Medicine (Second Edition)

“Osteomyelitis of the skull from pseudomonas in a patient with diabetes.” – Kaplan Medical USMLE Master the Boards Step 3:

Modern novels

“Because sometimes things happen to people and they’re not equipped to deal with them” – Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, Book Two), Suzanne Collins

“The key to your happiness is to own your slippers, own who you are, own how you look, own your family, own the talents you have, and own the ones you don’t. If you keep saying your slippers aren’t yours, then you’ll die searching, you’ll die bitter, always feeling you were promised more. Not only our actions, but also our omissions, become our destiny.” – Cutting for Stone, Abraham Verghese

“You gone have to ask yourself, Am I gone believe what them fools say about me today?” – The Help, Kathryn Stockett
