We asked three centenarians what their most valuable life lessons were, and also their regrets.
The conversations that followed were remarkable. They talked about the importance of family, people, relationships and love. Their view on life, as an elderly citizen with a lot of experience is truly an inspiration and motivation. Enjoy the video!

,,When people pass and hear me talking to myself they think I'm crackers
but I'm not crackers... I'm only thinking about my children."
This and her telling it, the way she's smiling but also the sadness you can see inside her eyes made me kinda cry... maybe...
She radiates sooo much positivity, you can see that she's in peace with herself and that she's still a strong woman, even though she's beeen through a lot.
She reminds me of my grandmother. She's had a rough life and in the past months it's been getting worse but she's still so remarkably strong and keeps smiling everytime I see her. I think it hurts me more than it hurts her to see what's happeneing and additionally to her condition she's not getting younger... I'm not ready to lose her even though I know it's inevitable but it kinda helps me to know that when she'll go one day she can look back on a wonderful yet tough life. Only wish I could've been a better grandson in the past years
State of mind is key. My mom and 2 of her sisters are in their 80's. My mom and the next oldest are loosing their memories. The younger one has the most positive attitude - seems to find something to laugh about in any situation. She just seems so much younger than the other 2. Find the joy and laughter in life. If it isn't there, make it. Make it happen.
Imagine how it must feel to be able to witness the evolution of our society for them. When they were young they never thought that smart phones, or computers would exist or that we would go to the moon one day. Truely amazing individuals
Secret of those people? They lived during the very small period of humanity where the government were not corrupt and the works industries were treating people as human, not useless tools of production. You'll not live to 100 because this period is over, sorry about that.
I will be 69 in a few days and play competitive badminton twice a week, play saxophone in a in a 'pop' band and really do feel about 35. Plenty to look forward to but listening to these wonderful people and reading many comments, I have to say the reason we think they are brilliant is because of the 'era' they came from. They would be into their late 30s before they had television, 60s before computers. A car would have been a luxury item for the few and as a consequence they grew up "talking" to other people. Very likely knew everyone in their street/ village. A time when it was the norm to be neighbourly and "look out " for one another and most of all respect others and their elders. Sad to say the world we live in now has changed so much that very few ( if any) of today's young will be as warm and thoughtful as these three. I sincerely hope I'm wrong but I am not optimistic.☹️
I found the meaning of my life in this video ..
I learned that there is no way to overcome death, but there is how to deal with it.
I believe that if death were a person, she would be very happy to know that you understood her, understood that there is no way to overcome it, but there is how you accept it
I'm 14 and turning 15 very soon 2 jan , i saw that there are alot of childrens don't like elders things . But honestly they are the most important thing to our life , they have there past and the present , and they know how they past all those things they loved to do , and they all gives us beautifull advices , and i learnd alot to them , thank you sooo much to making these kind of vidoes i love it
Wonderful that there are people that age who still have a clear mind. Whenever I visit my grandma in the hospital, there are women lying next to her who cry for their family, are always confused and don't want the assistens to touch them. All I can say is that getting help is not a bad thing and that you should always hear people out.
It’s only as you get older you can appreciate what it takes to get to an age like that... the mental, just as much and if not, more than the physical.
“I’m not crackers, I’m just thinking of my children”.
I giovani senza lavoro anche quando lo cercano, i disoccupati e i licenziati prima del pensionamento non si nutrono di pensiero positivo.
Mangiare è necessario per vivere,potersi curare se ci si ammala idem perchè nessuno ti cura gratuitamente
Con tutto il rispetto è un gran bel video del caxxo
Thank you very much... Lovely. One word Wisdom! For those who ask what's the meaning of life there you go. Probably life can be defined as memories construction path... And for doing so I guess we will be better suited when foster sensitivity...
The problems of the Western culture. No wonder marriages don't last long cuz of the fact that these westerners are dogs who can have sex with anyone without marriage and all the false promises!
Then they come up judging us Easterners.....at least we have the morals which you don't have or ever will. However I do hope you guys get to find something better in life than sex, money and alcohol!
bet they are infuriated by what the leftist freaks have done to western Europe over the last 30 years. These people watched their relatives die in wars defending their country only to have the current leaders hand much of it over to Islam
You just have to think about how many incredible experiences that they have had. Living through World War I and World War II is the most interesting part to me. They have really lived the most significant portion of modern history.
