Kindle Keyboard problem with text

I notice that all my books that have like this indentation or whatever its called, are only indented on one side and not the other. Here is example:

Why does this happen and is there anything I can do to fix this?

Isn't that what you are supposed to do when quoting a long passage?

It's called a "blockquote". The Kindle only does a left indent of a blockquote because of the narrow width of the screen. It's just a feature of the Mobipocket file format.
