It's an undeniable fact that Dolly Parton is America's sweetheart.
Don't believe me? Twitter is full of evidence.
First of all, she's a hilarious meme queen.
Dolly's able to take any old photo of herself (or even an animated GIF!) and find a way to make people laugh.
He must've said something pretty clever. https://t.co/TbIGr5WrAW— Dolly Parton (@Dolly Parton)1521576964.0
In the South this look means "bless your heart," and that ain't always a compliment! 😅 https://t.co/Sw5Frwyt4X— Dolly Parton (@Dolly Parton)1521224165.0
She's also not afraid to poke a little fun at herself.
I've been told a few times I should run for President, but I think there are enough boobs in the race already ;) #ElectionDay— Dolly Parton (@Dolly Parton)1478633491.0
The magic with me is that I look completely false when I’m completely real! ;)— Dolly Parton (@Dolly Parton)1419281137.0
It's no wonder she's got some pretty famous friends.
Like fellow southern gal Reese Witherspoon.

Not to mention she's the (fairy) godmother to the one and only Miley Cyrus.
My Aunt Dolly always told me "if someone shows you their true colors.... believe them." 🌈🌈🌈— Miley Ray Cyrus (@Miley Ray Cyrus)1384473929.0

And it's not all about glitz and glamour. For decades, Dolly has been using her platform to give back to her community.
She's most well-known for her efforts to support early childhood literacy. In 1995, Dolly launched her Imagination Library, a free book gifting program, to ensure that every child in her Tennessee hometown had the opportunity to grow up in a home with books.
Since then, the organization has gone international. In February 2018, Dolly's Library donated its 100 millionth book.
Today we dedicate the 100 Millionth @DollysLibrary Book to the @librarycongress! I always like to say that 100 mill… https://t.co/fzADmNIhnS— Dolly Parton (@Dolly Parton)1519746579.0
Her generosity and passion for children extend far beyond literacy. She recently pledged $1,000,000 to the children's hospital that successfully treated her niece's leukemia.
I had a great time today visiting @VUMCchildren & in honor of my niece & all the superhero kids I'm pledging $1,000… https://t.co/nSJfZCgp65— Dolly Parton (@Dolly Parton)1507938302.0
And she even wrote a song to help encourage kids undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
"Chemo Hero" is a very special to me. When my niece was 4 she had leukemia so I wrote this & other songs to encoura… https://t.co/FY2F1mYzqC— Dolly Parton (@Dolly Parton)1506703576.0
She's also quick to support natural disaster victims — and she encourages others to do the same.

But beyond her humor, her A-list friends, and her generous spirit, Dolly is a G*DDAMN inspiration.
Seriously. If you're in need some motivation (or just general life advice), follow Dolly on Twitter. Let her words wash over you.
