[Note] that [there are] three parts of readiness in learning: tight-wittedness, memory, acuity. And memory is the preservation of what one has learned, acuity [is] the swiftness of mind, tight-wittedness [is] tracking down even the things one did not learn out of the things one did learn.
Greek Original:
Ὀξύτης: ὅτι τρία μέρη εὐμαθείας, ἀγχίνοια, μνήμη, ὀξύτης. καὶ μνήμη μέν ἐστι τήρησις ὧν ἔμαθέ τις, ὀξύτης δὲ ἡ ταχύτης τῆς διανοίας, ἀγχίνοια δὲ τὸ ἐξ ὧν ἔμαθε θηρεύειν καὶ ἃ μὴ ἔμαθεν.
