You said our father ruined us, and I can't help but wonder, what if his father ruined him?


Centuries later, each of us is broken. You with your anger and paranoia. Me with my fear of abandonment. And poor Elijah. He dedicates himself to everyone but himself. We are the strongest creatures in the world and yet we are damaged beyond repair. We live without hope, but we will never die. We are the definition of "cursed," always and forever.


Klaus: I love my family. You, Elijah. I loved all of you. I know I can be difficult, but I did not make myself this way. It was Mikael who ruined me.
Rebekah: He ruined me, too. That's what you forget.

Rebekah: You're insane.
Klaus: YES. YES. I am a vicious, heartless monster...

You look at me and you see everything you abhor in yourself. Sure, you dress it up with your fancy suits and your handkerchiefs. You with your mask of civility and eloquence, you're every bit the abomination I am. Or worse.


[to Marcel] You know, I never much thought about dying. One of the perks of being immortal I guess. What an odd thing it is to be here one minute and gone the next. Rather terrifying.


[to Davina] No one can control you unless you let them.


Klaus: You stand accused of betraying your own blood. How do you plead?
Rebekah: I plead you to shut up and listen.

You reap what you sow, Marcel.


Kieran: So a century ago you betrayed Klaus, the most dangerous vampire in history, and the only one who can save you is the girl that you had locked up in my attic, but she's a basketcase, so really your only hope is my niece, psychoanalyst to resurrected teen witches. Does that about sum it up?
Marcel: You know, you're pretty smug for a guy with a witch's hex.

Elijah: Niklaus, I understand your anger, but I implore you, be better than him. Do what he could not. Demonstrate the grace of mercy rather than this petty cruelty.
Klaus: You ask me to show mercy to one who has wronged me? You really don't know me at all, do you, brother?

Klaus: How long do you think you can defend her?
Elijah: As long as it takes, and by whatever means necessary.

The Originals Quotes

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.


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? Or do you have other, deadlier ones to fight? And though you celebrate having won the battle, have you really prepared for the war? So as we dress ourselves in teh armor needed for this new fight, we must first tend to our wounds, starting with the deepest.
