We have a smile on our face when we think or see Betty White.
Few women are lucky in Hollywood who has enjoyed a career that spans over seven decades. Her roles are iconic (Rose forever!), her comedic timing remains impeccable. We can not ignore how she shares life experiences with us, and all are marked by relatable wisdom few celebrities can offer.
On January 17, the iconic star celebrates her 98th birthday. In her honor, we’ve shared some of the best advice and quotes of her.
“Enjoy life,” she recently toldParade. “Accentuate the positive, not the negative. It sounds so trite, but a lot of people will pick out something to complain about, rather than say, ‘Hey, that was great!’ It’s not hard to find great stuff if you look.” Her other piece of advice? Eat hot dogs and drink vodka, “probably in that order.”
“It’s not hard to find great stuff if you look.”
White was married to game show host Allen Ludden for 18 years.
She met with him when White was a contestant on the TV game show Password.Both fell in love, but White refused his proposal twice. They were eventually married in 1963. “I spent a whole year, wasted a whole year that Allen and I could have had together, saying, ‘No, I wouldn’t marry him,'” she told Oprah on an episode of Where Are They Now.
“No, I won’t leave California.No, I won’t move to New York. I wasted a whole year we could have had together, but we made it. We finally did. ” Ludden passed away in 1981 from stomach cancer.
In an interview with Katie Couric at her 95th birthday, White advised who are dealing with the death of a spouse. “One day at a time,” she said. “You don’t look ahead and you try not to look back.”
She said it’s important to make yourself useful as you age.
“People take a very dim view of aging, not just in show business, but in almost every business,” White said in a 2014 interview with Harper’s Bazaar.
“They’re always looking for the young people coming up, which I understand. But make yourself as useful as possible so that they’ll find a place for you too! And don’t complain—try to accentuate the positive rather than the negative.
If you’re complaining, you’re not fun to be around, and fun is the name of the game.”
