Dolly on Self-awareness

I’m not offended by all the dumb-blonde jokes because I know that I’m not dumb. I also know I’m not blonde.

    Love this! Goes to show that you can’t judge a book by it’s cover!

  • Thank you, Sal! I have used this quote myself. I love Dolly’s attitude. When asked if her breasts were really hers, she allegedly said “Sure, I paid for ’em.”

  • Tara

    I love Dolly! She’s so sweet and ADORABLE!

  • Dolly Parton is a savvy business woman and entertainer. She has also cultivated her image scrupulously. She wholeheartedly embraces who she is and how she is built, and makes no apologies for any of her decisions. She is fabulous!

  • Sal, I laughed out loud at that one! Oh, I love it!

    Patti–that’s another great Dolly quote I hadn’t heard!

  • Anna

  • What a wonderful quote!

    Among the many women my late grandmother adored, Dolly was at the top of the list. This is why. Smart, sassy, in your face but sweet too. Love her!

  • Ava

    That’s a pretty excellent quote.

  • Lynn

    Dolly Parton is a one-of-a-kind, amazing woman. My favorite quote from her is “It takes a lot of money to look this cheap”. How awesome is she?

  • Helen

    How’s that for self assurance? We should all be so confident in ourselves, our inner beauty and our abilities that we can easily repel dumb comments and criticisms from others. She is someone who is so often underestimated and not given enough credit for her brains and extreme business acumen.

  • Love Dolly! xx
