Life Lessons From 100-Year-Olds

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think I’ve done all that I wanted to do. As long as I can be helpful and keep going. That’s the main thing. My name is Clifford, but call me Cliff Crozier and I was born on the 6th of September 1915. Makes me now a hundred and one. born in Birkenhead in the Wirral, Cheshire. Apart from the war and the time I was at college, I’ve been everywhere in my life. I’ve been retired now for thirty-eight years. It always pleases me though that I can keep robbing the government with my pension. hmm It’s just that you keep going. It’s only a number. A hundred and one is only a number and you live for the day. A spot of whiskey occasionally helps… …although it’s not on National Health. I have a pile of fond memories. I sometimes sit down in my chair and think of my past, and I try to sort of reorganize the story about these people that I have got in my mind and mix them up together first, and then pair them all. (laughs) And I think there are quite a few people out there that would be… …very very happy to be together because they are such lovely people that they are. Amelia Tereza Harper. Tereza, It’s Tereza because it’s Czechoslovakian. A hundred and three, my goodness me. Three is my lucky number. I have always been lucky. I’ve never been unlucky, touch wood. Oh, there’s wood underneath there. I was in Czechoslovakia when I was a young girl… …and I was living with my grandparents because my father was a prisoner of war. We came over to England to be with our father when he was released from the war. Everything makes me happy. I love talking to people. I like doing things. I like going out shopping. Once I go out shopping I don’t want to come back. (laughs) I don’t think there’s anything I really need to do… …because I’ve done practically everything that I ever wanted to do in the past. I’ve got beautiful memories you know. I can live happily forever after because of my lovely memories.

  1. I am supposed to be optimistic and positive but I worry about everything. I am told that will shorten my life. So I worry more.

  2. English people are robber.
    They robbed money from countries and make them poor.
    And with that money english people have high living of stander. And other countries people living poor life because of them.

  3. "Everything makes me happy"

    And I just realized some things I cried because of not being contented on what I have. Happiness is a choice indeed. Godbless!

  4. Wow I love when he says Age is just a number
    I do agree Age is just a number 🌟⭐️
    I pray all of them in this video Live Longer and Longer

  5. What happen to this man is different than will happen for every one else, life is volatile it is not constant . so you have to adopt yourself for every situation and plans very good for your future .

  6. Absolutely adore this mini documentary and therefore making an effort to revisit this video clip from time to time~ Many thanks.

  7. i wish i live over a hundred years old too. Lifehunters, thank you for this wonderful video. I really learned a lot.

  8. nice persspectives–I do not understand though how anyone wants to live long here, when you cab=n live forever out of here

  9. There is nothing in the world like being young especially being young and beautiful for a woman cuz life over 50 sucks😂 My biggest regret (well I’m 57 I have a few😂) is that I spent DECADES not years- worshipping the sun ☀️ I always had the most beautiful tan and started it early in March thru October (I live in Texas) my saving grace was probably that I never use tanning beds I felt like I needed to give my skin a little bit of a break but come March I was back at it! Someone once said to me aren’t you afraid of skin cancer? My reply was ….. UM NOOO🤷‍♀️ Like that’s the thing that happens “to other people” not me! SOOOO 10 years ago at 47 I was diagnosed with skin cancer- since then I have had 10 MOHS surgeries on my face I have treated numerous lesions on my chest my back my arms too- shit pops up like weeds- over the last few years I have learned to treat them as soon as they come up so that I can avoid the surgery’s- Previously I didn’t know what they were and they grew out of control to the point where MOHS surgery was the only option- I have more scars than Edward Scissorhands! The moral of the story – it seems like everything that brings such pleasure and joy that is an addiction can hurt you somehow someway over time – thousands and thousands of dollars-scars- and the burden that comes with these things popping up on the daily the never ending treatment all because I wanted to have that beautiful tan🤷‍♀️skin cancer aside tho staying out of the sun does give you healthier younger looking skin! Another thing I wished I had paid attention to when I was young- List is long and distinguished tho- you can tell young people stuff all day long they’re probably not going to listen tho!

  10. I’ve always wondered what goes through an elderly persons mind when they’re sitting alone. I now know they reminisce about their life & miss it. That’s how my father was.

  11. The entire world JUST moved on from horse and wagon when these people were born, and that guy is ordering food on an IPad

  12. I thought David Rockefeller was the interviewee so came to leave a nasty remark for that satanic SOB. Glad to find 3 fine human beings. God bless.

  13. This reminded me of my grandparents,I’m hiding my tears from mom :,)
    Who else loves old people with white hair ?

  14. skim milk, vegetables, and fucking bread? that's the secret? nah… bunch of crap. have wicked genes or don't. that's the secret

  15. They used to say, an 'oldie' in the home is gold… I have always wondered why until I realize, we need people who remembers… Who have been through the years, if only to keep us grounded.

  16. when they're young they eat healthy foods from the garden, while we millenials food is now full of something like chemistry n stuff that isnt good for our health. that is why they can live a very long age n still lookin fresh

  17. I love these guys, it warms my heart to see their smiles and hear their stories! I admire their positive energy, God bless them all!

  18. I admire these people alot, because they've done what they wanted, completed the bucket list but not yet kicked the bucket, unfortunately many of us will not even see 60, due to the rise of global warming. I bid all of you good luck and these people certainly, not to kick the bucket!

  19. Sure – my biggest regret? not destroying everything mediocre, phoney, without heart- without concern..
    I would of left nothing. and operated even more robotically when it came to anything other than my feelings. I would use , abuse, betray , take first. Never to stop. Because it was the cheapest scape goat or alternative.
    Umm. Another day in paradise. I really got my head on straight now. I always understood. But its all too cheesy to be real..

  20. My great-grandmother is nearly 97. I try to visit often because she is soooo wonderful to be around! Many people in this video remind me of her. She has outlived two husbands, a daughter and her grandson AND she's a mf baller, one of the funniest people I will ever encounter. Talk to your grandparents if you still can people

  21. "I don't have failures. If I bake a bread and it fails it becomes a pudding "

    How you perceive failure says so much about you

  22. You know, my hypothesis to living a long life comes from the average life of an elderly person (mid 70’s-90’s):

    • They all had girlfriends between the ages of 15-19

    • They worked young

    • They’re happy

    • They love penny pinching unless it comes to feeding a hungry grandchild in which case; good luck leaving hungry

    Like the elderly lady said, a great remedy for life is to be happy and content and although some of you might not have girlfriends or just broke up with someone but if you keep looking I’d give you a money bet you won’t be alone forever! Hope you have a good day and a fantastic life 😀

  23. They said they have done everything ,nothing to do now 😒 no regrets ! They have done everything. ,and i am here doing nothing .

  24. I can't stop crying when Tereza talked about her children, her daughter and positively think her memories about them. 😭
