Who doesn’t love Betty White? At 97 years old, she has made the world fall in love with her, and we will never stop.
From her pioneering work in the 1950s (she was the first woman to produce a sitcom) to her innocent and naive character of Rose Nylund on “The Golden Girls,” Betty has always been a sure bet.
Born January 17, 1922, Betty began her television career in the late 1930s and gained popularity while working as a “girl Friday” on Hollywood on Television. Her filmography is just as long as her acting career, but Betty White will always be remembered for the roles she played in The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Golden Girls and Hot in Cleveland.
Betty has a ridiculous kind heart. She has a reputation for being a devoted animal lover and activist and during WWII she decided to put her career on hold for a while and join the American Women’s Voluntary Services. We’re taking a look back at some of the best quotes from this incredible, kind, generous woman:
1 “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.”
2 “Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don’t worry about other people so much.”
3 “Animals don’t lie. Animals don’t criticize. If animals have moody days, they handle them better than humans do.”
4 “I’m not into animal rights — I’m only into animal welfare and health. I’ve been with the Morris Animal Foundation since the ’70s. We’re a health organization. We fund campaign health studies for dogs, cats, lizards and wildlife. I’ve worked with the L.A. Zoo for about the same length of time.”
5 “If everyone took personal responsibility for their animals, we wouldn’t have a lot of the animal problems that we do. I’m a big spay-and-neuter supporter. Don’t have babies if you’re not going to take care of those babies. We don’t need more. We just need to take care of the ones we have. Take responsibility and breathe kindness.”
6 “I’m not a big cook. I only go in the kitchen to feed my dog.”
7 “Friendship takes time and energy if it’s going to work. You can luck into something great, but it doesn’t last if you don’t give it proper appreciation.”
8 “I just make it my business to get along with people so I can have fun. It’s that simple.”
9 “Animal lover that I am, a cougar I am not.”
10 “You can always tell about somebody by the way they put their hands on an animal.”
11 “I have no regrets at all. None. I consider myself to be the luckiest old broad on two feet.”
