CELEBRITY

Mary Tyler Moore’ words we’ll live by long after she’s gone.

The TV Icon who passed yesterday helped define womanhood in the 1960s and ’70s. Now that she’s no longer with us, all we have left are her sayings.

You might want to clutch them to your heart. Here:

  • Having a dream is what keeps you alive. Overcoming the challenges makes life worth living.
  • Behind every beautiful fur, there is a story. It is a bloody, barbaric story.
  • Take chances, make mistakes. That’s how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave.
  • Sometimes you have to get to know someone really well to realize you’re really strangers.
  • Chronic disease like a troublesome relative is something you can learn to manage but never quite escape.
  • You can’t be brave if you’ve only had wonderful things happen to you.
  • Take chances, make mistakes. That’s how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave.
  • I have always chosen work that challenges me, because if I don’t go in to work a little scared, I don’t have any interest in it.
  • You truly have to make the very best of what you’ve got. We all do.
  • Well, there are certain foods that I prefer not to eat because they’re just such a jolt to the system.
  • Diabetes is an all-too-personal time bomb which can go off today, tomorrow, next year, or 10 years from now – a time bomb affecting millions like me and the children here today.
  • I still feel as if I weren’t a good enough mother. I didn’t break any rules.
