At times it can be frustrating to have such a wise mind in a younger body. People usually have a harder time accepting your insights when you are an old soul, even if they should seriously follow what you say because of your intact intuition and gained experiences.

Often, people who are old souls feel much more ancient than they actually are. They uncover the secrets to the universe by accident in their youth, which allows them to gain the insight they need to make better decisions as adults.

Virgil Kalyana Mittata Iordache

“How I miss wandering around with old souls,
Aimlessly moving from one place to another
How I miss all our dreams and our goals
And how we've lost ourselves to find each other

Seems like a playful game of hide-n-seek
But that's how we'll forever play this life
Loving and living the truth that we seek
Until embraced we find our way to strive

Gazing into strangers' eyes to find our soul mates,
Knowing we're so much closer than we thought.
Our heart keeps the light that forever radiates
Through all the darkness, 'til love is taught

And yet again we look into the skies,
We see the stars, the moon, that light
Missing our home beyond the nights
Living in love until the end of the fight.”

Lord Byron

“There is an order
Of mortals on the earth, who do become
Old in their youth, and die ere middle age,
Without the violence of warlike death;
Some perishing of pleasure, some of study,
Some worn with toil, some of mere weariness,
Some of disease, and some insanity,
And some of wither’d or of broken hearts;
For this last is a malady which slays
More than are number’d in the lists of Fate,
Taking all shapes and bearing many names.”

“Part of coming from old money, apparently, was having old-person habits, those gross, adult needs and desperate palliatives. The Object was still too young for the effects to tell on her. She didn’t have eye bags yet or stained fingernails. But the appetite for sophisticated ruin was already there. She smelled like smoke, if you got close. Her stomach was a mess. But her face continued to give off its autumnal display.”
― Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex

“The body gives up faster than the soul. Time wrinkles it, wounds it, debases it. Varicose veins, menopause… Time makes it a caricature… The body plays along, a good sport. The soul, though, is a sore loser. It needs more time to blow out the candles. It only concedes in fits and starts… through painful revelations… through a series of frights.”
― Zidrou & Aimée de Jongh

“Be grateful if you look younger than your age
while also being wiser than many of your contemporaries.
It means the fire of your Old Soul is alive and well.
Embrace it.
Surround yourself with those who celebrate this fiery Light 

shining bright out of your soul;

those who are summoned to fan your glimmering flames 

and dance within them.
Embrace them.”
― Omar Cherif
