  When you started to learn to read, it was all like this.  It was pretty
  hard work by adult standard, but then you got the hang of it and it
  became effortless.  The same goes for reading faster.  Indeed, all
  thinking skills are very hard work when you are not training for them.

  In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
