We asked three unique and lovely 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! And please let us know what your thoughts are!

@Esteban Sandoval It's still sad that she outlived all of her children. We as parents aren't supposed to do that, but life happens. She has a wonderful outlook on life. God Bless her. This was 5 years ago. I wonder if they have all passed or are still with us.

"I don't have many failures. If I'm making a cake and it fails, it becomes a pudding" I think this is a motto everybody should be adapting, especially creative types.

If I'm making a cake and it fails, i'm trying again with what've learned until i succeed. Im curious what that guy would do if he substitute failed cake with fail/burnt steak. Blended Steak Pudding/smoothie anyone?? I jk of course. I get it that the motto works for some.

If you're making a cake and it fails? How do you screw-up a cake? Note to self: Always move the goalposts. Also: Don't go to that guys house for pudding, because you never know what it was supposed to be.

I'm 79 living alone now. I lost my beautiful wife of 25 years 10 years ago when she was only 60. I've been through hell trying to cope with all the obvious things that come with such a devastating event, but I've gotten to know and help myself more and more as time goes on, erasing bad memories and loving the good ones. I know my wife is up there helping me , so I'm going for 105 like my Uncle Ed did! Great video, Thank you all. Stay HAPPY and live on! From Mike in Minnesota

I've always been scared to get old because I got so accused to going out and seeing just angry elderly people all the time making it seem like the longer you're here, the more bitter you get. So I always love when I see happy elderly folks, it gives me a warm feeling in my heart.

Strange, because I'm in my mid 70's and I don't find the people around me of similar age to be all the much different than they were when I was younger. More experienced and less prone to buying into BS perhaps, and more feeble, but the same kinds of people have existed since I left home in the 60's. I think every generation goes through the same evolution, but each generation always thinks they are unique. Took me 70 years to figure that out. I'm slow.

My Grandmother passed 2 months shy of 109. I remember when she was 105 asking her how old she felt inside. She said "Honey child I feel like I'm only 85"! The thing she had in common with these others was that she was always laughing. I'm shooting for 100 I think.

@Dan Farrar @David Crandall bingo this is the point of a long life, compare your body to a brand new car , from the moment your born, the more work you put in a car the faster it will end in the junkyard, same thing with humans the more you make your body work by overfeeding your body, or eating all the processed food , lots of salt, sugar, fried food, dairy, meat , using alll these chemicals and inhaling by accident like perfumes, carbon monoxide, soap, detergent, even flouride in the toothpaste , paraben on soap and alluminum in most theodorants, that's not mentioning all the pesticide it's on all kinds of food and preservatives, all those bad things your body have to work hard to digest and also push out all those toxins ,decaying your organs faster than ever as they have to overwork to push all toxins out , making people sick very fast and leading to death some sooner than others,.. so the best secret to a long life is try not to make your body work as much as you can so you could preserve it for a long time like you preserve a car you value alot and of course do not stress because it also puts pressure on your body, have yourself a blessed long life🙏🏼.

Clifford is a sweetheart. I worked in care homes and most of the time the mentally fit ones couldn't walk anymore and the confused ones were light on their feet and ran away. But didn't know who they were and where they were headed to. It was heartbraking. So it's soooo good to see someone 101 years old with a strong walk and fit in his mind. 🥰

I love how these people talk about they're grateful they did what they wanted and they talked about creating and thinking about fond memories. This is an eye opener, when we grow old, we'll have a lot of things to think about and we'll look at our past to evaluate ourselves and our lives. It brings them happiness for them to think about their loved ones and their memories. I love how they also get their food from their own gardens. With them eating fresh foods, living with positive optimism, enjoying and appreciating their hardships & joys & this is one of the reasons why they are able to extend their life span and live so long. It's great they mention marriages don't last long because people give up too easily.😊❤ I love their wisdom, I'm saving this video.

One has to remember (and one of them spoke of this) that they actively erase bad memories and cherish good ones. So in reality, they have no burden from negative memories. I'm 73 and have found this is quite possible and is perhaps one of the secrets of a long life. Just carry the good memories forward.

When I was a little boy nearly seven decades ago, children were taught that the respect of an old person was not only appropriate, but that their long life and amassed wisdom demanded it, and made it a sort of sacred thing; and that if one was guilty of disrespecting the elderly, they had committed a special sort of a sin, as though they'd broken a nearly Holy rule. To make fun of, or to belittle, an old person at the time I was a boy would have been unconscionable, and anyone who'd done it, would have been thought perhaps mentally ill, because there could have been no other explanation for such an unthinkable act. But Hollywood intentionally writes despicable "old people jokes" directly into their scripts and more times than not, the audience laughs unreservedly and unabashedly. This is the part that truly indicts our present society. Firstly, that when people laugh, they do so heartily and without embarrassment, and more fundamentally, that anyone would find humor in such crude dialog, at all! They can see nothing wrong with it! Oh dear. Unless society can see the transgression in this obvious disrespectful act, how can we ever expect it to see the light, and mend its ways in the other more difficult to correct areas of behavior? Has the ship drifted too far from the dock to bring it back? Can our society's behavior ever be truly civilized again? Just because we are now in the year 2022 and consider ourselves "enlightened, and civilized" does not mean that we are actually, either one, or that we are going forward as a species, for that matter. New gadgetry may advance our technology, but it does not advance our humanity.

It saddens me deeply that there are "hip" TikTokers whom social media has afforded a large audience in my generation; not only have these influencers shown not even a bit of respect for the older people in our society, but they have also ridiculed anyone who opposes their trans-millennial - and, dare I say it, Lilliputian - ideology. Thankfully, not all of us are like that - my friends, for example, having been taught courtesy, understand that these "jokes" are both unreasonable and ignorant of the elderly's wisdom.

Yes, I see this disrespect in the many jokes about the Boomers made by younger people, who think that everything should be perfect for them, that they have somehow been cheated by their parents and grandparents, and that they are so much hipper and wiser than the old people.

It actually seems to make more sense to explain it as "people who are closer to death value increments of time that are smaller than one year." Children do this because they are only a few years old, and people over 100 do this because they are only a few years away from death. For both, smaller increments means more. It has nothing to do with choosing to have a childlike mentality as it does having to do with a natural response to a shift in perspective relating to one's mortality.

When children say halfs it's because they want to be older but when you're 102 and say halfs it's because they're proud they've made it to such a grand old age.x

All these 100+ year olds have in common is that they are all very positive, studies have also shown that positive people live longer which this just emphasizes.

The intelligence surrounding these really well lived lives is of a similar culture. Even the Pharmacist knew and realized that intellect had been his only neglect. The cultural ethos was also something they all had in common. Being of service to others seemed to be a common thread, also, between them. Eric Sevareid once said: "all you need is: food, shelter, clothing and mental stimulation." He said it somewhere in a TV interview around Valentines Day 1974, as I recall but have not been able to locate.

And sending my regards to my grandparents both passed away already. Realzing myself do I consider my parents advice? It is an eye-opening video and everyone should watch it.

They love life, they always make the best of things, and they have a great sense of humor. It's no wonder they live to a ripe old age! They are my role models for sure!

Glad this popped up. Loved it. What struck me was the simple joy they all seemed to have in common. It is what I have started trying to focus on as I get older, just appreciating the joy of ordinary days, instead of regretting I'm not somewhere else doing something more fun or exciting or things I can't do anymore.

John was adorable. He said that he was born "at an early age." lol. Sweet. What's so sad is that when you live to be that old and outlive your children? What's left but just you and your memories. It's not like you can start over again. I'd love to know what happened to these three now, this video being over 4 years old. What a blessing.
