If one has no sense of humor, one is in trouble.” – Betty White: 27 Betty White Funny, Butterfly and Other Quotes.

Betty White

Life is tough,
don’t make it tougher for you and those you love,
try as much as you can,
as often as you can,
to put the cares of this world aside,
and enjoy the gift of life you have;
You can’t choose how long yours will last
but you can choose to live a very good life.
So begin today to choose to laugh where you cried in the past,
To hope for the best where you worried in the past,
Share a smile instead of complaints,
Speak about happiness instead of pains,
Life is tough and short,
So choose to make memories of best times longer than those of worst.
