Elena: It's not going to get any easier, is it?
Stefan: No. It's not.

Stefan: Maybe they're ninja turtles. Or zombies. Werewolves.
Damon: This is reality, and there's no such thing as werewolves.

She'll try to break us, and how we respond to that will define us.

Katherine: I came back for you.
Stefan: The problem, Katherine, is that I hate you.
Katherine: That sounds like the beginning of a love story. Not the end of one.

Stefan: I haven't spent 145 years obsessed with you.
Katherine: Based on your choice of women, I'd say otherwise.

Stefan: How can I play if I don't know the rules?
Katherine: No rules, Stefan. Don't you remember? No rules.

Stefan: I try so hard to hate him, I guess it's just pointless.
Elena: You care about him, so do I. But I love, Stefan.

Damon: You have no sense of humor.
Stefan: I have no sense of Damon humor.

Stefan: What proof do you have?
Damon: I don't need proof. That's between Elena, John, Maury and a DNA test.

If I just give myself over to the blood, I can make that pain stop. Every day, I fight that.

Damon: It is a whole new world.
Stefan: We can explore it together.

Stefan: You're taking a stupid risk. I could hurt you.
Elena: Then I'm stupid.

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.
