Living In Three Centuries: Faces Worn By Time

102 year-old 
Chinese man, a farmer who started working at age four.

Here's an exceptionally beautiful collection of photographic centenarian portraits; photos of folks who have lived over one hundred years. They drop some funny quotes—

“Why have you lived this long?” I asked. He said, “I don't fool around with women, beer, wine or whiskey.”
110 year 320 day-old American man

Another old fella quipped similarly.

“I don't drink, smoke or chase women;” he says, “they chase me.”
108 year-old American man of English descent.
