  • "The ordinary conception of time is taken by Heidegger to 'cover up' the character of temporality as a mode of Dasein's existence, by reducing it to 'a sequence of "nows" which are constantly "present-at-hand", simultaneously passing away and coming along' in an uninterrupted flow, as if they existed externally to one another and independently of Dasein."
  • "It is also important to remember as you progress through this book and discover the more negative affects of what has happened in the past, that you realize that Soul exists in eternity, and, as all of us must do in overcoming adversity in our lives, we must look at these events as a part of the endless series of "nows" in which we really have existence."
  • "These series of 'nows' really only begin to matter when they change what will be, or become memories of what was."
