Betty White quotes (showing 1-16 of 16)

“Why do people say "grow some balls"? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding.”
Betty White
“Animals don’t lie. Animals don’t criticize. If animals have moody days, they handle them better than humans do.”
Betty White, If You Ask Me
“If one has no sense of humor, one is in trouble.”
Betty White, If You Ask Me
“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. Friendship can be so comfortable, but nurture it-don't take it for granted.”
Betty White, If You Ask Me
“I'm a teenager trapped in an old body.”
Betty White
“It’s [old age] not a surprise, we knew it was coming – make the most of it. 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.”
Betty White, If You Ask Me
“People have told me 'Betty, Facebook is a great way to keep in touch with old friends...'
.. At my age, if I wanted to keep in touch with old friends, I'd need a Ouija board”
Betty White
“Retirement is not in my vocabulary. They aren't going to get rid of me that way.”
Betty White
“You don't luck into integrity. You work at it.”
Betty White, If You Ask Me
“All creatures must learn to coexist. That’s why the brown bear and the field mouse can share their lives in harmony. Of course, they can’t mate or the mice would explode.”
Betty White

“I don't care who anybody sleeps with. If a couple has been together all that time -- and there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones -- I think it's fine if they want to get married. I don't know how people can get so anti-something. Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don't worry about other people so much.”
Betty White
“A lady likes to be complimented on her looks, her eyes, her figure. But the personality comments are much appreciated.”
Betty White
“You can lie to anyone in the world and even get away with it, perhaps, but when you are alone and look into your own eyes in the mirror, you can’t sidestep the truth. Always be sure you can meet those eyes directly.”
Betty White, If You Ask Me
“That’s when you have to remember that image in the mirror and not let success get to you. It is important that you not believe your own publicity. Be grateful for whatever praise you receive, but take it with a grain of salt.”
