Betty White — our favorite Golden Girl — turns 97 today. Yes, 90-freaking-seven.
And in the wake of such a seemingly dismal week of celeb passings, it's refreshing to know that the actress will probably outlive us all and doesn't look a day over 74.
But who really cares what you look like at 97 (or any age, for that matter), we'd just love to have half the charisma White has maintained through her golden years.
To celebrate the actress' birthday, here are 5 inspiring quotes from the seasoned star that might help you become the kind of person who's still going strong at 97.
On the Power of Your Attitude
"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 the humor in our everyday lives. And sometimes it can be a lifesaver."
On Being Agreeable
"I just make it my business to get along with people so I can have fun. It's that simple."
“I have no regrets at all. None. I consider myself to be the luckiest old broad on two feet."
On Going Through the Hard Stuff
“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. Keep the person in your heart all the time. Replay the good times. Be grateful for the years you had.”
On Career Longevity
“I had no idea that I would still be around at this point for one thing, but that I’d still be privileged enough to still be in this business. And it is such a privilege. And the bottom line I think to the television business is that unless you’re a real bad egg, it is such fun. It really is. Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
