I do believe in killing the messenger. Know why? It sends a message.


Stefan is different. He wants to be human. He wants to feel every episode of How I Met Your Mother.


Elena: Human life means that little to you?
Isobel: It means nothing to me. It's just being who I am.

Alaric: She threatened to go on a killing spree.
Damon: I take it that's not okay with you guys?

Damon: You successfully cured him of anything interesting about his personality.
Elena: Remember who helped me.
Damon: I hate myself.

Alaric: How could I not search for you?
Isobel: Because I wasn't lost, Ric.

John: What do you think your mother would say if she knew you were dating a vampire?
Elena: Which mother?

You brood too much... My actions, they belong to me. I own them.


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.

You're not exactly innocent. You've made it your life mission to make him miserable.


What did you think you were gonna find? Isobel with a cigar and slippers?


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.
