As Parton’s 76th birthday approaches on Jan. 19, the world is sure to hear more uplifting sayings from her melodic wordsmith mind.

Here’s a look at some of Parton’s best takes on lewe, kindness, loopbaan, skoonheid, geloof and courage.

Lewe

Don’t get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.

Figure out who you are. Then do it on purpose.

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

Life is sweeter when you have an attitude of gratitude!”

The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you have to put up with the rain.

Kindness

I always just thought if you see somebody without a smile, give ’em yours!”

When folks ask for my advice on staying positive, I just tell ’em it’s simple! All the healing starts with you. It’s all about YOUR attitude, no matter what life throws at you!”

Leave something good in every day.

This year my birthday wish is a call for kindness. We can’t just hope for a brighter day, we have to work for a brighter day. Love too often gets buried in a world of hurt and fear.

Loopbaan

I’m very active. I’m restless. I can’t stand feelin’ bored. I got more guts than I got talent, but I got enough talent to back it up.

If you talk bad about country music, it’s like saying bad things about my momma. Them’s fightin’ woorde!”

I refuse to settle for something less than great. And if it takes a lifetime, then that’s how long I’ll waitIs that too much to ask?”

When I’m inspired, I get excited because I can’t wait to see what I’ll come up with next.

Being a star just means that you just find your own special place, and that you shine where you are. Aan my, that’s what being a star means.

Skoonheid

I feel glamorous on the inside, so I want to look like it on the outside.

You don’t need to buy expensive cosmetics; almost anything will do if you know how to apply it.

Rhinestones, makeup and hair are funbut it’s what’s on the inside that makes you a truly special one.

Gotta keep your hair, hakke, and standards high!”

Faith

I do not sit in the seat of judgmentI love people for who they are. We’re all God’s children!”

I’ve got all I need, Jesus and gravity!”

I’ll never harden my heart, but I’ve toughened the muscles around it.

Courage

You never do a whole lot unless you’re brave enough to try.

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

I’m not going to limit myself just because people won’t accept the fact that I can do something else.

Storms make trees take deeper roots.
