I mean in this way: suppose, for instance, I were asking you what is quickness, as we find it in running and harping, in speaking and learning, and in many other activities, and as possessed by us practically in any action worth mentioning, whether of arms or legs, or mouth or voice, or mind: or do you not use the word so?

Yes, to be sure.

Well then, suppose someone asked me: Socrates, what do you mean by this thing which in all cases you term quickness?
