Teresa de Lauretis Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Teresa de Lauretis from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

The hero, the mythical subject, is constructed as human being and as male;
he is the active principle of culture,
the establisher of distinction, the creator of differences.
- Teresa de Lauretis

The state of the world, of course, is constantly changing,
and so is theory.
- Teresa de Lauretis

originates in an embodied subjectivity,
at once overdetermined and permeable to contingent events.

in those days, not only because male academic discourse
did not recognize such a term,
but especially because the women's movement did not either.

No one was ever named "Hero" for following the crowd.
Heroes set their own course.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie PHOTO

I honor you, Hero, for you do not play to the crowd.
You play to your own soul.
An audience of one fills the house with its appreciation and applause.
Others follow you, and may attempt to emulate you,
but that is not why you are a hero.
Fame may smile upon you, or it may not.
The world may cheer your name, or you may be the unknown warrior
who rescued comrades in battle,
or taught a young girl how to shed tears of joy.
Whatever you did, you did not do for fame.
If you had, you would not be a Hero.
You are a Hero for your bold courageous inspired action.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

A hero may or may not lead other people,
but all heroes lead themselves.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
