They say that celebrities are just people. That to put them up on a pedestal is to set these flawed, yet shiny, humans up for a great fall. But, you know which celebrity has been going strong for oh, I don't know, 95 years or so, without ever really disappointing us even once? My girl, the incomparable Betty White. On the contrary, actually, instead of letting us down, as most people (famous or not) inevitably do, White has only increased her impressiveness over the years.

While most people would wind down in their careers as they approached their elderly years, the actor actually amped up her work load. And it doesn't really feel like it's because White needs the money. As TIME relays, per Celebrity Net Worth, her net worth is $45 million. No, it seems that it's more about the fact that she still has so much more to contribute to entertainment, to comedy, and honestly, the world as a whole. White proves that wit, chutzpah, and liveliness doesn't have an age. In fact, if anything, the universally beloved star proves that she does what all aspiring legends hope to — she transcends time.

Here are 23 GIFs that prove that Betty White is a true gift to humanity, one I am extremely thankful for.
