Dolly Parton on Circumstances – Quote of the Day – 4/23/26

“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.”
-Dolly Parton

I believe the theme of this post goes hand in hand with my last post, which was focused on a quote of similar substance by Richard Hooker. We cannot have the exact circumstances we want in our lives 100% of the time. That is neither possible nor probable. I find Dolly’s common-sense, no-nonsense approach to that fact delightful.

In a way, it reminds me of the wedding vows I took on the day I got married. You’re in this life, and pursuing your calling, for better or worse, richer or poorer, in sickness and in health for as long as you live. Whether you’ve currently got rain or rainbows, you’ve got to make the best of what you have right now.

Heed Your Calling & God Bless!
