Life Lessons From 100-Year-Olds

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.

  8. Granted, these old timers did pass on a little "if I knew then what I know now", but they don't convey that they've had a considerably difficult life, and don't pass on much to someone in the trenches trying to get out. Then again, that is ones own adventure.

    I miss my grandpa .. the elder I grow .. more the value I recognize of family relations .. glad I have such adorable family 🙂

  10. My grandmother lived to be 97 and I can only hope I don’t get anywhere near that! I am 39 and I only have about 20 more years of tolerance for life left in me. The world is too wicked and evil?

  11. One of the facts in life that I've accepted fullheartedly is that I'd never live long enough to be 60.

    70 if I'm lucky.

  12. the title of this vid is translated in german on my youtube app somehow, it says "lebenslektionen von 100-jährigen". i read initially "lesbenlektionen von 100-jährigen", which means lesbian lectures from a 100 years old.

    i guess 4 a.m is my limit…
