Nobody's perfect. The only one that ever was, was crucified.
I've seen every highway in the United States, and they all look alike to me.
There's always been a man telling me what to do.
Do the best you can with yourself and hope for the best.
I don't go to church regular. But I pray for answers to my problems.
I want more out of life than I've gotten.
I was married when I wasn't quite 14 and had four babies by the time I was 18.
I was the first woman ever named Entertainer of the Year in country music.
I wasn't for Vietnam. When I told that to the hippie newspaper, all my people got nervous.
I won all the blue ribbons for canning at the state fair.
I wouldn't have dared ask God for all that He's given me. I couldn't have done it on my own. I thank God every day for what I have.

I'd love to work more with the American Indians, my people.
I'm always making Butcher Holler sound like the most backward part of the United States-and I think maybe it is.

I'm proud of being part Cherokee, and I think it's time all us Indians felt the same way.
I'm trying to lead a good Christian life, so there ain't too much spicy to tell about me.

I've been around a long time, and life still has a whole lot of surprises for me.
I've been married to the same man for all this time. The way we fight sometimes, you can tell.
I've seen country music go uptown, like we say, and I'm proud I was there when it happened.
I don't like to talk about things where you're going to gt one side or the other unhappy. My music has no politics.
I get along with all the women singers, but especially Dolly Parton. We talk the same hillbilly language.
I know there's some kind of history to mountain music-like it came from Ireland or England or Scotland and we kept up the tradition.
