Only one of us was around when dance was invented.

Stefan: I just wanna spend as much time with you as possible.
Elena: I'm okay with that.

You'd be surprised what Stefan can accomplish when he puts his mind to it.

Elena: The Gilberts aren't crazy.
Jeremy: Easy for you to say, you're not one.

Elena: How long until he's back to normal.
Damon: A few days, give or take.
Elena: It's been a few days.
Damon: Give then? I don't know.

Elena: You were like this other person, and it's my fault.
Stefan: You didn't do anything. You were saving my life.

Elena: What do they want with him?
Damon: Revenge.

Elena: Damon gets what he wants, no matter who he hurts in the process.
Damon: Well, you don't need to be snarky about it.

Stefan: Have you thought about it?
Elena: About what? Isobel, my vampire birth mother, who's related to my vampire ancestor Katherine, who screwed over your vampire brother? No, I haven't thought about it at all.

Woman: [on phone] Was there a problem? Did you find her?
Elena: Isobel?

You're a powerful witch goddess. Seize the day, Brumhilda.

You are so teaching me how to hand-jive.

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.
