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
In every moment a choice exists. We can cling to the past or embrace the inevitability of change and allow a brighter future to unfold before us.

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

Cami: I’ve lost count of the amount of times you’ve been there for me and everyone you care about. But today you saved someone who doesn’t mean a thing to you. Why?
Klaus: Because you wished it. Because what’s important to you is important to me. What makes you happy makes me want to keep you so. What scares you, I want to tear apart. I do not wish to watch you from behind glass, Camille.
Cami: What do you wish?

Elijah, I’ve spent the last 24 hours being so angry at Tristan, at your family, at you, at Jackson even, for always being so brave. But then I realize that I’m not angry, I’m not mad. I’m just guilty. I wanted to blame you, blame anyone. The truth is that my husband died because he loved me, and loving any of us is a death sentence, isn’t it?Hayley

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
[to Klaus] I...let this person in. I let her in. I don't let people in. You knew this, and you've taken her from me. I needed her and you've broken me.Elijah
