Rainbow in Cornwall.
“If you want to see the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.”
That’s my favorite Dolly Parton quote because it reminds me that there is no storm in life that isn’t followed by a rainbow.

Dolly Parton quotes:
–I’m not going to limit myself just because people won’t accept the fact that I can do something else.
–I’m not offended by all the dumb blonde jokes because I know I’m not dumb… and I also know that I’m not blonde.
–It costs a lot of money to look this cheap.
–My weaknesses have always been food and men – in that order.
–People make jokes about my bosoms, why don’t they look underneath the breasts at the heart? It’s obvious I’ve got big ones and if people want to assume they’re not mine, then let them.
–Storms make trees take deeper roots.
–We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails.
–When I’m inspired, I get excited because I can’t wait to see what I’ll come up with next.
–Yeah I flirt, I’m not blind and I’m not dead!
–You’ll never do a whole lot unless you’re brave enough to try.
–I patterned myself after this woman that was the town tramp back home. She had blond hair and high heels and red fingernails and lips, and to me she was like what movie stars were to other kids. We’d see her, and I’d say, “Oh, look, she’s got plastic goldfish in her heels!” and my mama would say, “She ain’t nothin’ but trash, nothin’ but trash,” and I thought, “Ooh, that’s what I’m gonna be when I grow up — trash!”
