Favorite Quotes from Dolly Parton 

“When I meet someone, I look at their eyes and their smile and seek out the good first – it’s easy to find when you’re looking for it. You let a person shine with their own light and try to connect it to yours. As soon as I say hello, I go right to that light and I don’t care who you are! I know we’re all pieces of the same thing – I go for that common light because I know it’s in all of us.” – Dolly Parton

“I’m the kind of person who would rather rock in my rocking chair when I’m old and regret a few things that I did than to sit there and regret that I never tried.” – Dolly Parton

“Mine is only one of the millions of hearts broken over the death of Whitney Houston. I will always be grateful and in awe of the wonderful performance she did on my song and I can truly say from the bottom of my heart, ‘Whitney, I will always love you. You will be missed.'” – Dolly Parton

“I’ve struggled enough in my life to be appreciated and understood. I’ve had to go against all kinds of people through the years just to be myself. I think everybody should be allowed to be who they are, and to love who they love. I don’t think we should be judgmental. Lord, I’ve got enough problems of my own to pass judgment on somebody else.” – Dolly Parton

“I describe my looks like a blend of mother goose, Cinderella, and the local hooker!” – Dolly Parton

3 Strong Lessons from Dolly Parton 

Let’s take a look at some of the strongest lessons we can learn from her:

 

1. Reinvent Yourself

If we’re lucky, we will encounter countless chapters and revisions of who we are as we age. Aging used to scare me in my early adult life, but Dolly somehow makes it okay to continuously discover and embrace new interpretations of who I will become.

 

2. Confidence is Beauty

Now that we are finally in an era that seems to be accepting of various body sizes and versions of beauty, nearly every public model of “real body beauty” attributes inspiration from Dolly.

I believe this is because Dolly represents unapologetic confidence: “The magic with me is that I look completely false when I’m completely real.” Dolly’s energy of not giving a damn is truly aspirational when the fear and insecurity sets in.

 

3. Diversity and Acceptance Matter

People are drawn to Dolly because she radiates acceptance and love. In an increasingly divided nation, she’s a shining light of inclusive hope, tolerance, and respect we all need — and need to treasure.

You will never hear Dolly condemning anyone on their life choices, and her gift for making everyone feel accepted has paid off: “I just don’t feel like I have to explain myself. I love everybody.”

She quietly avoids public political discussions, but her feelings on the matter are beautifully concise: “I believe in ‘human rights’ and the Scripture, ‘Judge not, lest ye be judged.’” That’s a kind of gospel that I can get behind.
