Betty Marion White Ludden, known professionally as Betty White, is an American actor and comedian born in 1922.

She’s had the longest television career of any female entertainer.

Not only is she an actor, she is also one of the first women to have control both in front of and behind the camera and she is recognized as the first woman to produce a sitcom.

She is probably best known for her roles in The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Golden Girls and, more recently, Hot in Cleveland.

However, she’s had a successful career spanning more than 75 years and she’s received eight Emmy awards in various categories.

And she continues to work despite her age.

What makes her interesting to me is her positive attitude.

Whenever you hear her speak or give advice she’s always so positive and that’s a quality I admire in people.

So here are 15 quotes by Betty White to illustrate my point.

Quotes by Betty White (1-8):

  1. I may be a senior but so what? I’m still hot.
  2. I just make it my business to get along with people so I can have fun. It’s that simple.
  3. It’s your outlook on life that counts. If you take yourself lightly and don’t take yourself too seriously, pretty soon you can find humour in our everyday lives. And sometimes it can be a lifesaver.
  4. I think it’s your mental attitude. So many of us start dreading age in high school and that’s a waste of a lovely life. ‘Oh… I’m 30, oh, I’m 40, oh, 50.’ Make the most of it.
  5. I have a two-story house and a bad memory, so I’m up and down those stairs all the time. That’s my exercise. 
  6. The bottom line is, I’m blessed with good health. On top of that, I don’t go around thinking ‘Oh, I’m 90, I better do this or I better do that.’ I’m just Betty. I’m the same Betty that I’ve always been. Take it or leave it. 
  7. Retirement is not in my vocabulary. They aren’t going to get rid of me that way. 
  8. Don’t try to be young. Just open your mind. Stay interested in stuff. There are so many things I won’t live long enough to find out about, but I’m still curious about them. You know people who are already saying, ‘I’m going to be 30 – oh, what am I going to do?’ Well, use that decade! Use them all! 

Quotes by Betty White (9-15):

  1. I really don’t care with whom you sleep. I just care what kind of a decent human being you are. 
  2. I’m having the time of my life and the fact that I’m still working – how lucky can you get? I’m 90 years old and still able to work as much as I do. That’s a privilege. 
  3. I didn’t know what Facebook was, and now that I do know what it is, I have to say, it sounds like a huge waste of time. 
  4. The audience today has heard every joke. They know every plot. They know where you’re going before you even start. That’s a tough audience to surprise, and a tough audience to write for. It’s much more competitive now because the audience is so much more – I want to say ‘sophisticated.’ 
  5. A lot of people think this is a goody-two-shoes talking. But we do have a tendency to complain rather than celebrate who we are. I learned at my mother’s knee it’s better to appreciate what’s happening. I think we kind of talk ourselves into the negative sometimes. 
  6. Animals don’t lie. Animals don’t criticize. If animals have moody days, they handle them better than humans do. 
  7. If you’re walking with your lady on the sidewalk, I still like to see a man walking street-side, to protect the lady from traffic. I grew up with that, and I hate to see something like that get lost. I still like to see that a man opens the door. I like those touches of chivalry that are fast disappearing. If I sound old-fashioned, it’s because I’m as old as I am! But it’s just polite.
