Betty White Quotes Prove Why America Can't Get Enough Of The 91 Year Old On Her Birthday

Along with apple pie and baseball, loving Betty White is one of America's favorite pastimes. And on the comedienne's 91st birthday, it's hard not to join in on the love fest.

Along with always making us laugh -- whether as Sue Ann Nivens, the catty thorn in Mary Tyler Moore's side, or as dizzy Rose Nylund from Saint Olaf -- White has always been a great role model for a new kind of aging. Instead of coasting on her well-earned laurels (she's been in the business for more than 70 years), the "Golden Girl" shows no signs of slowing down, reinvigorating her career in the early aughts in a number of movies and television shows and bringing laughter to a new generation of fans.

Her good sense of humor must be a key to her longevity, as seen in our slideshow of some of her best quotes on aging. (And if you'd like to wish Betty White a happy birthday, make a gift to Morris Animal Foundation.)
