[to Caroline] Yesterday you told me that you made a list of all the ways that loving me has ruined your life, and I get it. I haven't made it easy on you, but I made a list too. Of all the ways that loving you has changed mine. You were by my side when I needed a friend. You made me laugh, you made me dance. You told me that I would find love again, and I understand if you need time to heal and to live your life without me. I understand if I have to wait for you. And I will. I'll wait. And when you're ready for me, I will be ready for you.

I don't think Elena necessarily came into my life to be soul mate. I mean, she was. We loved each other, but she was also the only person I've ever met who actually believed that my brother was worth loving. And she reminded me that I used to believe that about him too. Her faith in him, it brought Damon and me back together, and yeah, I loved her, more than I thought I could love somebody else, but I think in the end I needed him more than I needed her.

Stefan: You're coming with me?
Damon: It's Elena.

Damon: Not cool, brother.
Stefan: Come one. A little bit cool, no?

You'd be surprised how easy it is to forget the past, Elena.

Elena: You don't have to push me away. I can do this.
Stefan: I can't.

Silas needs to die. And I need to be the one to kill him. End of story.

Stefan: They are people, Damon. She's not a puppet, she doesn't exist for your amusement, for you to feed on whenever you want to.
Damon: Sure she does. They all do. They're whatever I want them to be.

Elena: How do you look in a suit?
Stefan: I can pull one off.

I’m one hundred and sixty two years old and I’m going to a homecoming dance. I need better ties.

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

Hello, brother.

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.

Damon

He's your first love. I intend to be your last. However long it takes.

Klaus [to Caroline]
