They say the passage of time will heal all wounds, but the greater the loss, the deeper the cut and the more difficult the process to become whole again. The pain may fade, but scars serve as a reminder of our suffering and make the bearer all the more resolved never to be wounded again. So as time moves along we get lost in distractions, act out in frustration, react with aggression, give in to anger, and all the while we plot and plan as we wait to grow stronger, and before we know it, the time passes. We are healed. Ready to begin anew.Klaus
We define ourselves by our family. From birth we share their names, entrust them to protect that which we hold most dear. We value them above all others, and yet inevitably, we are forced apart. Promises are made then left unkept. Children in particular turn their backs on those who raised them, seeking lives of their own. The bond of family is not a bond forged by choice. In fact, some would see family as a terrible burden.Dahlia
There's a saying in my family. Kill a demon today, face the devil tomorrow. Yet even as you dance on that demon's grave, you can't help but wonder, was that demon alone?

So as we dress ourselves in teh armor needed for this new fight, we must first tend to our wounds, starting with the deepest.Rebekah

All of us live with a demon inside. Some days you control the demon. And other days it controls you. And it is always hungry. It feeds on lust and longing. And while you may slumber, the demon never sleeps. It tempts you into crossing every line you've ever drawn, all the while it tests you, haunts you. And once it has turned your loved ones into enemies, the demon has consumed you whole.Rebekah
Elijah: [to Sabine] You ever experienced something so profoundly wonderful that when it was taken from you your life felt unbearable?
Sabine: Yes, I have felt that. And I have the scars to prove it.
