What is duration within us? A qualitative multiplicity, with no likeness to number; an organic evolution which is yet not an increasing quantity; a pure heterogeneity within which there are no distinct qualities. In a word, the moments of inner duration are not external to one another. 
~ Henri Bergson (tr. F. L. Pogson), Time and Free Will: An Essay on the Immediate Data of Consciousness (p. 225)
