Summary (from a commenter):
- Read over the lines a few times
- Write down the first letter of each word
- Read it using first letters only
- Try it from memory
Note: Up very late, really tired, tried this method for the first time, and an hour later still remember the text almost perfectly. This method is amazing; look forward to putting it to good use for Bible verses, famous quotes, and needful personal development reminders.
