Betty White Quotes

Betty White was a star for many reasons both on-screen in shows like The Golden Girls, but also all the words of advice she offered the world. Some quotes that she offered the world, “There’s no formula. Keep busy with your work and your life. You can’t become a professional mourner. It doesn’t help you or others. Replay the good times. Be grateful for the years you had.”

Life is funny and complicated and often random. There is no formula for every single person to follow. Her message is of hard work and gratitude.

Another quote of hers was, “So you may not be as fast on your feet, and the image in your mirror may be a little disappointing, but if you are still functioning and not in pain, gratitude should be the name of the game.” It’s all about perspective. Being grateful was Betty White’s message.

She also said, “Best thing about being in your 90s is you’re spoiled rotten. Everybody spoils you like mad and they treat you with such respect because you’re old. Little do they know, you haven’t changed. You haven’t changed [in the brain]. You’re just 90 every place else. Now that I’m 91, as opposed to being 90, I’m much wiser. I’m much more aware, and I’m much sexier.” It was again about perspective for Betty White. You’re still the same person as you age. You just look different. She took aging in stride.

Betty White will be missed by so many folks, both fans from afar and all those who knew her personally.
