Dream More Deluxe
Dream More Deluxe | Dolly Parton
6 posts | 2 read | 2 to read
The Deluxe eBook edition of Dream More includes rarely seen photographs placed throughout the text from Dolly Partons archives as well as audio and video of two of her songs, Celebrate the Dreamer in You and Try, which she performed live at the University of Tennessee commencement. The result is a delight for both the eyes and the ears. Based on the hugely popular commencement speech Dolly Parton gave at the University of Tennessee that became a sensation, Dream More is a deeper and richer exploration of the personal philosophy she has forged over the course of her astonishing career as a singer, songwriter, performer, and philanthropist. Using her speech as a jumping-off point, Parton explores the four great hopes she urges us to embrace: dream more, learn more, care more, and be more. She culls examples of these values from her own life as illustrations, from growing up poor in the hills of eastern Tennessee to her experiences as the iconic performer she has become today. Written by one of the cultural legends of our time, Dream More is a poignant and uplifting anthem for all who want to take charge of their lives and forge a future on their own terms.

"I believe that when you read, even if you don't get a chance to get an education, you can truly learn about everything."
Dolly Parton

I learned that Dolly and I have very similar views on the power of reading! ??

A small book with not so small messages. Dolly expands upon her popular commencement speech at the University of Tennessee to inspire us all to dream more, learn more, care more, and ultimately be more. She shares personal stories, her approach to work, her feelings on reading, and her own "wit and wisdom from the Dolly-Mama". With a positive yet honest tone, Dolly encourages us to pursue our own dreams without forgetting what's most important.

"I remain totally convinced that if we could do one simple thing to help kids and adults learn more, it would be to inspire them to read more."

My last read of 2018. it was short and humorous. I really enjoyed Dolly's honest humor
