Damon: You won. Now nothing can come between you and Elena. Except the truth. The lies catch up to you, the longer you keep lying to yourself about who you are.
Stefan: The beauty of you in there and me out here ... is that I can walk away.

[to Stefan] I'm saying this because of Elena. She's big on trust. The more you try to hide whatever it is you're hiding, the more determined she's gonna be to figure it out.


I don't know what's happening to me.


[to Stefan] What are you?!


I'm not gonna be one of those pathetic girls whose world stops just because of some guy.


I want so much to make things right but every instinct in my body is telling me to be careful. What you don't know can hurt you.


Jeremy: Why don't we choose not to get high?
Vicki: I hope you're not one of those guys who now that we're together tries to change everything about me.

Zach: You don't visit, Damon... You appear. Periodically. Reminding me that this isn't my house, that you're only allowing me to live here ... allowing me to live.
Damon: Someone had to mow the lawn.

Damon: I'm stronger than you think.
Stefan: You always have been. But you're not stronger than verveine. And you know it. I'm sorry. It didn't have to be this way.

Damon: Where's my ring?
Stefan: You won't be needing it anymore.

Caroline, help me.


Elena: I think there's something he doesn't want me to know, which makes me wanna know all the more.
Matt: Like he's a serial killer and keeps a clown suit in his trunk?

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.
