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.

  1. Great you showed us a glimpse into a life we're never going to have. I bet most of us here have more than one regret in life and here you are cherry picking the posh tenants of british people of all people. One of the most disgusting empires in the world. Words to live by my ass.

  2. Amazing…. God graciously gives them over 100 years to repent and believe on the Gospel… and not a word about their salvation (of course the documentarians may have edited all that out, but I sadly doubt it)

  3. I'm not listening to a random 100 year old no more then I would listen to a random 30nyesr old or a random 14 year old. It depends on who you are lol

  4. This guy was retired for 38 years. It will be worse with time. Young people will have to pay for these old people, and with population aging and shrinking who will be left to pay?

  5. 100 year olds now : I have made beautiful memories
    100 year olds after 100 years from now: I've made a beautiful Instagram profile

  6. I look at these weaklings and still wonder how their stomach digests food and how the fuck does shit pass through their asshole without killing them.

  7. Hearing that lady talk about losing her children hit a chord with me. She has so much love for them, you can tell in the way she talks. Beautiful.

  8. John being able to work his iPad with an of-course kind of ease is wonderful. He should teach the generation of his children that being a boomer Luddite doesn't come with age but from arrogance. Imagine being 100 and adapting to the world around you better than 65yos.

  9. Apart from all the wisdom they possess.. As a non native speaker, I find their English just beautiful and I think people don't speak like that nowadays. Wonderful language.

  10. "A hundred and one is just a number and you live by the day and a spot of whiskey doesn't hurt" great advice Mr. Cliff!!!

  11. I was on the titanic in 1912. These old ppl ain’t that old. These ppl weren’t even born! Age isn’t a thing. It’s technology that’s killing us!


  13. Brits of their era were incredibly adept at denying reality, essentially carrying forward an idea that they never did anything wrong. It grew from a very sick mindset originating in Victorian society. I know, I grew up with it, and spent many years in England with people of their generation. They could not even accept blame or responsibility for the slightest, smallest errors of any kind. If there's anything to be learned here, it's not to turn your back on Reality. Rather than interview these people, you should ask others what it was like having to live with them.

  14. I guess they're just also so lucky because of where they lived.. I also learned that enjoying your life and living the most of it each and everyday is the key to life. avoid toxic people, be content and practice gratitude…

  15. I used to care for a lady of 102, when her daughters started dying of old age that was weird to think about, they didn't die young, they were like 80 something.

  16. I'm 66. Life has slowed down a bit with children grown and job stopped. I love to sit and ponder life. It truly is your memories that will follow you through old age and keep you company. I hope all the new memories I am making now with my children and grandchildren will rest in their hearts. You truly can live forever if you make good and lasting memories with the people that surround you and the ones that you love.

  17. This is cool and all but all they talk about how old they are not really giving a single life lesson. Misleading title, but respect to the elders. Peace

  18. Extra ordinary humans.

    Too much time is spent revering celebrities when it's people like this that are truly exceptional…..

  19. Living this long and not showing a video of any of these people screaming at the evil for those coming next did nothing with their lives except use resources and play along with the insane. You can't have any of what they talk about unless you keep govt and others out of your family/life. Sad days for many that are being starved to death in Oregon because we had to cure aids instead of alzheimer.

  20. It's 29 Nov 2019 and I googled these three. The only one I saw an obituary for was the last, John Denerley. God rest. These are 3 beautiful people.

  21. I've often thought it would be incredibly lonely living to this age. Everyone you've known and loved, even your own children, have long since passed. But these three seem so content and at peace. I admire that.

  22. Ok, who dislikes this!? I would love to have lunch with Tereza and John and ALL OF THEM!, and not say a word; just listen ❤️❤️

  23. This video is so wholesome, I don’t understand why anyone would dislike it. These people have lived through the war, incredibly people!

  24. I get the feeling your loved ones are in the air thing. That's why I decided not to remember the date some of them have passed, because for me they are still around me. Just in another form

  25. 3:40 – Imagine "wasting your youth" going "yachting". How much money do you have to have to waste it going "yachting"? Jesus….
