I've never been the big recording star I'd love to be some day. I've had lots of hits off and on through the years but I've never had the success of other artists - one hit after another back-to-back-to-back and big hits, where every song is going to be number one. I'm not greedy or nothing. I just want everything. Is there something wrong with that?
~ Dolly Parton Quotes - Category: Greed.

My music is so mine, it's hard to turn it over to someone else. I have to be really involved in the production.

We make a good combination... I think we're going to have a real good record.

~ Dolly Parton Quotes - Category: Dreams.

Sure I'm in it for the money, but also because I love music. I picture myself in the future as a happy old lady, chubby, rosy cheeks, telling stories to the little kids. When I sit back in my rocker, I want to have done it all.
~ Dolly Parton Quotes, Time Magazine, April 18, 1977 - Category: Future, Money, Music.

Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn and myself were all in it about the same time. They got a little bit of a head start on me, certainly Loretta, but we were all three good friends and actually ended up doing an album together. But I think I was a little different from them. Loretta had a house full of kids and she wrote those being brought down by men songs. Hers were more about home life and all the women who had children and I totally love and respect her. Tammy could sing any number of things but she was also singing that Stand By Your Man. I was singing songs like Just Because I'm A Woman... my mistakes are no worse than yours just because I'm a woman. I think we all did our little thing. I just filled my spot.
~ Dolly Parton Quotes - Category: Music.

There's a heart beneath the boobs and a brain beneath the wig.
~ Dolly Parton Quotes - Category: Body, Breasts, Intelligence.

To me, it's about dreaming in the day and in the night. Dreams have always helped me visualize my goals and aspirations. When I was a child, I could see me on stage singing my heart out. I could see what I was wearing and where I was going. I would visit that dream every single day and as I look back, my dreams kept me focused on what I wanted to do and the person I wanted to be.
~ Dolly Parton Quotes - Category: Dreams, Focus.

When the new country came out ten to 15 years ago, people my age were almost too old. But it never stopped me. I never stopped writing. I never stopped recording.
