If you're gonna be maudlin, I'm gonna kill you myself. Just to put me out of your misery.

I've been marked. What the Hell kind of wolf pronoun stuff is that anyway?

A) He can't do anything about it and B) what I just said.

Elena: Do you think this is funny?
Damon: Yes, Elena, I find hilarity in the lengths I need to go to to save your life

I've been dead before. I got over it.

Elena is on a martyr tear that rivals even if you're greatest hits.

Stefan: Promise me, whatever happens, you'll protect her.
Damon: Promise.

If I had a dollar for every time some evil vampire surprised me.

Damon: I killed you. You were dead.
Elijah: For centuries now.

Get your ass out the door before I throw you over my shoulder and carry you out myself.

It's a plan. Is it perfect? What plan is?

Damon: I'd rather poke my eyes out.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
