Elena: I know it doesn't make sense. But in the beginning, after my parents died, there was something about being with Stefan. I felt safe.
Matt: Safe? Elena he's a vampire.

Elena: Are you insane?
Rebekah: I prefer spontaneous.

Elena: If you're mad at me, Damon, you need to get over it.
Damon: Oh, I'm over it.

Damon: There's something you should know. Stefan didn't screw us over, well he screwed us over but he had a good reason. He saved Klaus to save me.
Elena: What? Why would he even do that?
Damon I don't know... I feel like such an idiot.
Elena: Why?
Damon: For thinking that for one second I wouldn't have to feel guilty anymore.
Elena: What are you talking about? Guilty for what?
Damon: For wanting what I want.

Damon: I'm mad at you because I love you.
Elena: Well maybe that's the problem.

He's my family. I have to look out for him.

Elena: You can't kiss me again... it's not right.
Damon: It's right. It's just not right now.

Stefan: Destroying Klaus is all I have left.
Elena: You had me!

Vampires, hybrids and originals? No problem. My rebellious brother? I'm worried.

Elena: He's gonna kill Jeremy.
Stefan: Not really my problem.

Rick, hey. When did you return to the living?

Damon: My brother is sort of running his own show right now.
Elena: My brother just chopped of someone's head.

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.
