A very Happy Birthday to Oak Park native Betty White, recognized in 2013 by The Guinness World Records as the female with the longest TV career as an entertainer.

Over her 74 years on television White has starred in "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," "The Golden Girls" and a more recent TV Land hit, "Hot in Cleveland." We also can't forget a show I quite enjoyed, "Off Their Rockers," which went off the air in July of 2013.

In addition to starring in a number of shows, White also hosted Saturday Night Live in 2010 for which she received a Creative Arts Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series.

Get a few laughs out of White's 10 best quotes to date.
