Wisdom from the Aged

Recently, New York City's oldest resident (and briefly the world's), Alexander Imich,  died at the age of 111.
When asked by the New York Times reporter, Ralph Blumental, in an interview conducted 6 weeks before he died, how could he explain his longevity?

“I never thought I’d be that old,” he said.
He attributed his long life to the fact that he and his wife, Wela, a painter and therapist who died in 1986, never had children......... He also exercised, ate sparingly and never drank alcohol.
I knew my kids were destined to do me in. I guess it will be sooner rather than later, it seems.
