Inspirational Quotes from Famous People
The quality, not the longevity, of one's life is what is important.

Long Life and the Bible

Children are to obey and honour their parents.
"Children obey your parents; this is the right thing to do because God has placed them in authority over you. Honour your father and mother. This is the first of God's Ten Commandments that ends with a promise. And this is the promise: that if you honour your father and mother, yours will be a long life, full of blessing." Ephesians 6:1-3, TLB5

Promise of Long Life

Did you know God's Word promises us long life?  We can live long lives on this earth. It doesn't matter whether every relative you have died at age 62, God promises you a long life!  Short unhealthy lives and early deaths are from the enemy, not God!  Stand on the promise, inherit the blessing of a long life, honor your mother and father, keep God's Word and walk in His ways and you will live a long life.5
 

 

Definition of Longevity

1. a. Long life; great duration of life: His longevity vexed his heirs.
    b.
Length or duration of life: comparing the longevities of the two peoples.

2. Long duration or continuance, as in an occupation: had unusual longevity in the company; her longevity as a star.4
 

 

Meaning of Longevity

The word "longevity" is sometimes used as a synonym for "life expectancy" in demography. However, this is not the most popular or accepted definition. For the general public as well as writers, the word generally connotes "long life", especially when it concerns someone or something lasting longer than expected (an "ancient" tree, for example).

Reflections on longevity have usually gone beyond acknowledging the brevity of human life and have included thinking about methods to extend life. Longevity has been a topic not only for the scientific community but also for writers of travel, science fiction, and utopian novels.

There are many difficulties in authenticating the longest human lifespan ever by modern verification standards, due to inaccurate or incomplete birth statistics. Fiction, legend, and folklore have proposed or claimed lifespans in the past or future vastly longer than those verified by modern standards, and longevity narratives and unverified longevity claims frequently speak of their existence in the present.

The Gerontology Research Group validates current longevity records by modern standards, and maintains a list of supercentenarians; many other unvalidated longevity claims exist. Record-holding individuals include:

  • Jeanne Calment (1875-1997, 122 years, 164 days): the oldest person in history whose age has been verified by modern documentation. This defines the modern human lifespan, which is set by the oldest documented individual who ever lived.
  • Shigechiyo Izumi (1865?-1986, 120 years, 237 days, disputed): the oldest male ever recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records; this is questioned by some scholars, who believe that conflation of dates or names has compromised the authenticity of Izumi's age.
  • Christian Mortensen (1882-1998, 115 years, 252 days): the oldest male with undisputed modern documentation.8
