The hadith says that the person who recites 10 verses of the holy Quran everyday will be raised as someone who didn't neglect the Holy Quran.
My question is can these be the same 10 verses you recite everyday? And do you need to recite from the holy book or can you recite from memory?

You can recite from memory. As for the 10 verses, it’s more effective to read and practice 10 different verses. Also, remember that reading doesn’t mean just to read without applying. Read 10 verses and do your best to apply their meanings in your life.
