Now, Here are some quotes that Betty White said from http://www.brainyquote.com that I compiled.

– 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.

– I had to make a major decision with myself because I just don’t think you can do both: try to have a baby career and raise it and have a baby baby and raise it. And to try to do justice to either one. It was a very conscious decision on my part not to have children – which I have never regretted.

– During the Depression, my dad made radios to sell to make extra money. Nobody had any money to buy the radios, so he would trade them for dogs. He built kennels in the backyard, and he cared for the dogs.

– I love words. Sudoku I don’t get into, I’m not into numbers that much, and there are people who are hooked on that. But crossword puzzles, I just can’t – if I get a puppy and I paper train him and I put the – if all of a sudden I’d open the paper and there’s a crossword puzzle – ‘No, no, you can’t go on that, honey. I’ll take it.’

– I think older women still have a full life.

– Animal lover that I am, a cougar I am not.

– I’m not into animal rights. I’m only into animal welfare and health. I’ve been with the Morris Animal Foundation since the ’70s. We’re a health organization. We fund campaign health studies for dogs, cats, lizards and wildlife. I’ve worked with the L.A. Zoo for about the same length of time. I get my animal fixes!

– Anger tears me up inside… My own… or anyone else’s.

– If you’re walking with your lady on the sidewalk, I still like to see a man walking street-side, to protect the lady from traffic. I grew up with that, and I hate to see something like that get lost. I still like to see that a man opens the door. I like those touches of chivalry that are fast disappearing.

– Why retire from something if you’re loving it so much and enjoying it so much, and you’re blessed with another group of people to work with like the gang on ‘Hot in Cleveland?’ Why would I think of retiring? What would I do with myself?

– I think a lot of people like hidden-camera shows where they think they’re spying on somebody who doesn’t know they’re looking at them. And nobody takes it seriously – you either enjoy it and get a laugh out of the reactions or not.

– Wilderness is harder and harder to find these days on this beautiful planet, and we’re abusing our planet to the point of almost no return.

– Long ago, I did a five-and-a-half-hour-a-day, six-day-a-week talk show for four years, early on, in Los Angeles – local show. And when you are on that many hours with no script, you know, you get very comfortable, maybe overly comfortable with that small audience.

– It’s a little-known fact that one in three family pets gets lost during its lifetime, and approximately 9 million pets enter shelters each year. That’s why it’s a wonderful thing to get your pet microchipped and registered with your contact information because then they can be located and the owners can track where their pets are.

– I enjoy being busy, I really do. Remember, I’m the stub end of the railroad. I have no family, so I’m not taking busy time away from people that I should be spending it with. So I’m just relaxing and enjoying it.

– If you have one good series, you know, it’s a blessing. Two good series is unusual. Three is a phenomenon, but right now, I’m working with these wonderful women on ‘Hot in Cleveland,’ and Valerie Bertinelli, and Wendy Malick and Jane Leeves are like, it’s like the buddy-ship we had on ‘Golden Girls’ and ‘Mary Tyler Moore.’

– My mother and dad were big animal lovers, too. I just don’t know how I would have lived without animals around me. I’m fascinated by them – both domestic pets and the wild community. They just are the most interesting things in the world to me, and it’s made such a difference in my lifetime.

– I think it’s your mental attitude. So many of us start dreading age in high school and that’s a waste of a lovely life. ‘Oh… I’m 30, oh, I’m 40, oh, 50.’ Make the most of it.

– The bottom line is, I’m blessed with good health. On top of that, I don’t go around thinking ‘Oh, I’m 90, I better do this or I better do that.’ I’m just Betty. I’m the same Betty that I’ve always been. Take it or leave it.

– Take personal responsibility. A lot of people go, ‘Well, I’ll get a dog because I have a kid and a kid needs a dog.’ And it doesn’t work out for that dog and the dog is on the street.

– Of course, nobody’s tearing my door down. If you’re successful you’re going to intimidate and scare off the people you’d like to spend time with. They’re not going to approach you. And the ones who do are often there because you are a celebrity.

Thanks For All the Fun & Laughs Jay Leno – I Will Miss You

Jay Leno what can I say? last night during the final taping and all this week, I am sure the emotions were running high at the Final Show of The Tonight Show. 22 years have come and gone with celebrities, politicians, awesome surprises, what a beautiful last show. As I hold back my tears, I can truly say that Jay Leno you made my mother and I laugh so hard with your awesome monologues, the headlines, Jaywalking, 99cent dollar store items, Jays funny  pumpcasting, coulda woulda shoulda, the most wonderful time of the year, and everything else in between. You began your show with Billy Crystal, and ending with Billy Crystal on your show along with the touching music of Garth Brooks. With all the tributes from the stars that came on the show tonight like Carol Burnett, Kim Kardashian, Oprah, Matt Damon, Bill Maher, etc… along with your final touching, heartfelt, beautiful speech really did it for me. I cried up a storm, I had a box of tissues handy. I definitely needed it. Jay the thing I liked the most, was that you really love your fans, and you made sure that your show was entertaining as possible and made everybody laugh, and have fun which did for me.

I stood up mainly because of your show, your headlines and everything else with Kevin Eubanks, Rickey Minor and the bands. As Mondays approached, I could not wait to watch your funny headlines among other things. Jay Leno I will miss you immensely and very much. Enjoy your time off and always know that I will always remember your show and I will always support, admire, love and respect you even when your off the air. Thanks for everything. I wish that somehow I could have been on your show and you would interview me. It was my dream to get on your show, it was a dream of mine to get to go see a live taping of your show as well, but that did not pan out and work out the way I wanted to.

Having talk shows, and the whole operations of it is extremely difficult, with getting stars on the show, the scheduling, the daily monologues, the designers, administrative work, getting the rights, set designers, getting celebrities on the show, politicians, as well as the studio use. It take a lot of time, energy, money and everything to make a show successful and 22 years is a long time for a show and Jay Leno was one of my favorites. I cannot believe it is the end of an era, Thanks for all the fun and laughs Jay Leno. I will miss you.

Now that Jay has passed the torch onto Jimmy Fallon, I would like to give a warm welcome to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon another person I truly adore, love and respect. Jimmy Fallon makes me laugh so hard as much as Jay Leno did. Best wishes to Jimmy and I look forward to his Tonight show. God bless you Jimmy Fallon on your journey and Jay, I would love to see your cars one day and meet you of course if I get lucky and come to Los Angeles for a visit. If I get an invite that is. lol. Thanks Jay and welcome Jimmy!

Montreal – It Is Not Goodbye – It’s See You Later – Must Part Ways For Now

There are somethings in life that one must give up to go forward in life and to achieve goals and get onto bigger things in life, and that is giving up my passion for Montreal, that I have written about in blog posts of before. Some of my friends could not believe when they saw that I was putting all that behind me. It is time to move forward and to prioritize my life, work hard to achieve my dreams, to look onto bigger and better things. I realize that Montreal will always be there and that I can go visit whenever I want to, but first thing is first to take charge of my life, get onto important things, get my career and life going. I have done a lot of thinking the last few weeks and I think it is the best decision I am making for myself. Being infatuated and in love with the whole road trip to Montreal and everything there was a distraction for me, and I decided to part ways as of today. I have been meaning to announce this for weeks now, but today I feel like it is the right time to do so. It was the hardest decision I had to make about Montreal not being my happy place anymore and doing things in my life for me from now on.

Getting my life together and doing what I want to do is the most important. My New Happy place is my future, and thinking about me and what I want in life, important things like having a job, meeting a special someone in my life who gives meaning to my life, whom I can call my best friend and someone whom I can share my life with, I want to work harder than I am now at my priorities. It was a hard decision to let go of something I truly love, but sometimes you have to set it free, which I am now. I know it is crazy to love a city this much, but its for the best for now. I will not entirely forget it because of the memories there and everything that has happened there with friends and everything else, but I need to do this for myself. I need to look after me and my future and no one else will look after me and my future but myself, nobody will knock on my door and offer me something great, no one will knock on my door and offer me money or a job. I need to knock on others doors and put my foot in the door if I want to help myself. That is how the world works. You have to go after what you want and how you want it. Reality has hit me hard the last few weeks. I am not getting any younger, I am getting older and responsibilities are piling up on me. Nothing in this life is free.

I believe that sometimes you have to sacrifice to succeed and to get to bigger and better things in life. I have learned that and I will utilize that with the best of my ability.

My friends in Montreal always mean a lot to me and I love them with all my heart. They are always with me in my heart, mind, soul and spirit. They are all lovely people whom I absolutely adore and care about. I am sure they understand that I cannot visit anytime soon because of things I am trying to accomplish in my life and things I am trying to achieve. Thank you for the memories, I will always cherish and love you all, and when it comes time for me to visit you all, we will have a rocking fun time and create new memories again, but for now Talin needs to take care of herself and her career, but she will be back.
