Man is not the lord of beings. Man is the shepherd of Being.

Some suggestions for you :

We do not say: Being is, time is, but rather: there is Being and there is time.

True time is four-dimensional.

Every man is born as many men and dies as a single one.

Time is not a thing, thus nothing which is, and yet it remains constant in its passing away without being something temporal like the beings in time.

We name time when we say: every thing has its time. This means: everything which actually is, every being comes and goes at the right time and remains for a time during the time allotted to it. Every thing has its time.

Making itself intelligible is suicide for philosophy.

The German language speaks Being, while all the others merely speak of Being.

Time-space as commonly understood, in the sense of the distance measured between two time-points, is the result of time calculation.

The human being is not the lord of beings, but the shepherd of Being.

But every historical statement and legitimization itself moves within a certain relation to history.

Being and time determine each other reciprocally, but in such a manner that neither can the former - Being - be addressed as something temporal nor can the latter - time - be addressed as a being.

To think Being itself explicitly requires disregarding Being to the extent that it is only grounded and interpreted in terms of beings and for beings as their ground, as in all metaphysics.

Only a god can save us.

The Fuhrer alone is the present and future German reality and its law. Learn to know ever more deeply: from now on every single thing demands decision, and every action responsibility.
