There are some interesting social effects at play at the Kindle’s Most Highlighted Passages of All Time. I particularly like the bit from Eat Pray Love:
People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that’s holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake.
Lovely. Surprising that the second most highlighted passage comes from Abraham Verghese’s Cutting for Stone, though.
