On her 100th birthday, a North Carolina great-great-great grandmother shared some hilarious insight and advice on how to live a fulfilling life.

Dorothy Chandler Collins, who has 13 children, 51 grandchildren and many great-great and great-great-great grandchildren, turned 100 years old over the weekend.

Before a big party with family and friends, Dorothy spoke to ABC News and revealed some of the valuable - and humorous - lessons she's learned over the last century.

1. If you could go back in time, what would you tell your 20-year-old self?

"I would tell her, 'Tell boys to leave you alone. No boys! You're better off! Because boys make you mad, so you’re better off without a boy.'"

2. What’s the most important thing parents need to understand about raising their children?

"Be sure they don't grow up too fast."

3. What’s the number one thing couples should remember in order to have a successful marriage?

"Stay married! Don't be bothered up with anyone else because you’ll lose your husband [or wife]. Young people love too many people and can’t satisfy not one of them!"

4. Do you have any regrets?

"I wouldn’t have had all these kids!" she quipped. "I know better now."

5. What’s the secret to a long life?

"God kept me!"
