Betty Marion White Ludden

Betty White quotes: about longevity, humor, health, mourning, and more.

“Don’t look back on something and say, ‘Gee wasn’t that great, I didn’t realize it at the time.’  Realize it as you go along.  Taste it for what it is now.  So, everything isn’t sweetness and light.  You get some bad times, too.  But, by appreciating and celebrating the good stuff, you can handle the bad stuff better.  And sometimes, you wonder how did you get this lucky, you’re going to owe it down the line somewhere along the line, but enjoy it now while it’s happening.”
