The adverbs are "quickly", "past", "slowly", and "forward"


And adverb is "a word or phrase that modifies or qualifies an adjective, verb, or other adverb". They answer several questions:

- quietly, loudly, gracefully, joyfully, etc.

- above, far, back, here, inside, etc.

- tomorrow, now, then, last year, etc.

How much (to what extent)?
- quite, fairly, barely, too, etc.

How often?
- always, sometimes, rarely, seldom, etc

In your sentence, "quickly" and "slowly" tell how; "past" tells when, and "forward" tells where.
