“We do not simply speak language, language also speaks us.” - Language makes us who we are. “What is significant is the person’s attitude to an unalterable fate.” - The person who hides from the world, closed to new experiences, fears love because of commitment, or doesn’t dare new challenges for fear of failure is making their life meaningless. - “We experience ourselves as a horizon.” - When certain events occur we become transparent to ourselves and get lost in the experience and become the horizon. - We have no hopes and desires. - At a strip club, sexual object (girl) and ATM Machine (guy). There is no human presence. Time-binding - The process of selecting, and combining together various elements of past times and generations to make something that did not exist before. - Dogs live in here and now.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
