100-Year-Old Woman Shares Her Secret to a Long Life
A Georgia native who recently turned 100 opened up about how she has survived over a century on earth, revealing an unbelievable secret.
The key to a long life is easier than anyone could have thought, going by 100-year-old Marie Robinson's logic. The centenarian, who marked her birthday on July 18, was more than glad to let the world in on her little secret.
During the occasion graced by family, friends, and well-wishers, the woman, who has been a devout Christian her whole life, acknowledged the place of her faith in her longevity.
She revealed: "My secret is to treat everybody right. And love everybody. Don't hate nobody. That's the only way we're going to make it to the kingdom. Serve the Lord [sic]."
Backing her words, Robinson's family confirmed she was an extraordinary role model to everyone around her, including family, friends, and members of her church.
Additionally, the centenarian remained committed to giving, loving, and serving others, which made her beloved in her community. They described her as a virtuous woman of God.
Robinson landed the planet in July 1921 to Will and Mary Morris in Henry County, Georgia. She spent most of her life in the state, where she married Moses Robinson and started a family with him.
While Robinson has lived an impressively long life, some legends have exceeded expectations with their record-breaking ages.
The duo stayed together for years, welcoming nine children before Moses passed away. While the mom-of-nine still "felt good" at 100, she has suffered the loss of four of her kids.

However, she has 35 grandchildren, 101 great-grandchildren, and 18 great-great-grandchildren to fill the void. As the family matriarch, she had the love of all her off-springs, who she also loved in return.
Robinson's joy was boundless as she marked her milestone surrounded by her large family. Her dance and cheerfulness reflected her happiness, even as she reverenced a row of candles, each lighting up a picture of a deceased loved one.
In addition to her long-life secret, Robinson had a heartfelt message for young people, advising them to raise their children right. She also had a mandate for the old, saying:
"But us old people need to teach them what's right, tell them how to love one another, and just keep on trusting in the Lord. He will make a way for you."
While Robinson has lived an impressively long life, some legends have exceeded expectations with their record-breaking ages. To date, the oldest person to ever live was Jeanne Louise Calment, who died at the age of 122.
Jiroemon Kimura, who lived to a hundred and one, holds the record for the oldest man ever. During his time on earth, he lived by the mantra, "eat light to live long," which definitely paid off.
Other habits linked to longevity include eating nuts, consuming plant-based diets, staying physically active, staying happy, gardening, and avoiding smoking and alcohol intake, among other healthy habits.
