Pearls of Dolly wisdom

GT rounds up Dolly Parton's greatest ever quotes

As Dolly takes the stage at Glastonbury, we've taken a look back at some of Dolly’s most memorable quotes...

1 “If you want the rainbow, you have to put up with the rain.”

2 “If you don’t like the road you’re walking, start paving another one.”

3 “It costs a lot of money to look this cheap”

4 “My weaknesses have always been food and men - in that order.”

5 “People always ask me how long it takes to do my hair. I don’t know, I’m never there.”

6 “I was the first woman to burn my bra - it took the fire department four days to put it out.”

7 “Don't get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.”

8 “We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails.”

9 “They think I’m simpleminded because I seem to be happy. Why shouldn’t I be happy? I have everything I ever wanted and more. Maybe I am simpleminded. Maybe that’s the key: simple.”

10 “If I see something saggin', baggin', or draggin', I'm gone have it nipped, tucked, or sucked!”

11 “Sometimes my mouth is a little too big and a little too open and sounds too much like a sailor.”

12 “I love to flirt, and I've never met a man I didn't like.”

13 “It's a good thing I was born a girl, otherwise I'd be a drag queen.”

14 “I don't kiss nobody's butt.”

15 “I modelled my looks on the town tramp.”

Words: Antonio Rastelli
