At the age of 103, the artist Beatrice Wood wrote to a friend:

Beatrice Wood, USA

American artist and writer (1893-1998)

“I hang on to the statement of scientists that there is no time. Therefore, join me in telling everyone you are thirty-two ... choosing to live in the timeless, I am now at the easiest and happiest time of my life.”
When asked the secret of her longevity, she would simply offer “art books, chocolates and young men”.
