Beloved actress, comedian, and beer bong champion (YouTube it) Betty White has blessed us all with her grace, humor, and attitude for decades.

As the legend celebrates her 95th birthday, it’s time we take a look back at some of the wisdom she passed down in interviews, books, and red carpet ramblings. 

Here are the most important Betty White quotes to live by: 

Be A Cougar — Whatever That Means To You

“In my head, I’m the ultimate cougar. Animal lover that I am.” — To Piers Morgan on CNN 

Aging Is Beautiful

“Guess what? I’m still hot.” — In her promotional music video for The Lifeline Program.  

Embrace Your Hobbies

“Vodka is kind of a hobby.” — On The Late Show with David Letterman 

Have Premarital Sex

“I married my first husband because we wanted to sleep together. It lasted six months and we were in bed for six months.” — To AARP Magazine 

Think Twice Before Plastic Surgery

“Gravity has taken over. So there’s not much I can do about it … My problem with [plastic surgery] is you’ll go to a women’s press conference or something like that, and old friends will come up and I kind of don’t recognize them. I recognize the voice, but I don’t — all of a sudden, there’s this whole new face that I don’t know who that is.” — In an interview on CNN with Joy Behar 

Really Consider If You're 'Parent Material' Before Having Kids

“I love children, the only problem with children: they grow up to be people, and I just like animals better than people. It’s that simple.” — In an interview with Entertainment Tonight 

Get Plenty Of Rest

“Get at least eight hours of beauty sleep, nine if you’re ugly.” — On The Late Show with David Letterman 

Domesticity Isn't For Everyone

“I’m not a big cook. I only go in the kitchen to feed my dog.”  From a column in Bon Appetit 

Stick To A Strict Fitness Regimen

“I’m a health nut. My favorite food is hot dogs with French fries. And my exercise: I have a two-story house and a very bad memory, so I’m up and down those stairs.” — In a New York Times Talk 

Be The Kind Of Person You Can Face In The Mirror Every Day

“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.” — in her book If You Ask Me 

Embrace (And Joke About) Old Age

“People say, ‘But Betty, Facebook is a great way to connect with old friends.’ Well, at my age, if I want to connect with old friends I need a Ouija board.” —From her opening monologue for Saturday Night Live 

Live Life With No Regrets

“I have no regrets at all. None. I consider myself to be the luckiest old broad on two feet.” — To Guinness World Records
