It's because I love you that I can't be selfish with you.
I don't deserve you.
Let me be clear about something: If it comes down to you or the witch again, I will gladly let Bonnie die. I will always choose you.
I can't lose you.
I've made a lot of choices that have gotten me here, but that's okay because if I had chosen differently, I wouldn't have met you.
I love you, you should know that.
When I drag my brother back from the edge and deliver him back to you, I want you to remember the things you felt while he was gone.
I promise you, I will never leave you again.
If I'm going to feel guilty about something, I'm going to feel guilty about this.
You look stunning, if it isn't obvious.
I would have saved you in a heartbeat, no question!
You would have gotten to grow up and have the life that you wanted, the life that you deserved, and I wanted that for you, Elena, and I would have gladly given it to you and let Matt die!
I don't think I've ever seen you more alive.
Listen carefully: Get in your car. Right now. Come to me.
I would rather die right now than to lose you when I'm too old and sick and miserable and you're still you! I would rather die right now than spend my last final years remembering how good I had it and how happy I was.
She's not worth a hair on your head.
No one tells me how I live my life, no one tells me who I love, and definitely not the universe. And I'm not going to let someone else's idea of destiny stop me from loving you or being with you or building a future with you...
Because you are my life.
You are by far the greatest thing to have ever happened to me in my 173 years on this earth. The fact that I get to die knowing that I was loved, not just by anyone, but by you, Elena Gilbert? That’s the epitome of a fulfilled life. It’s never going to get any better than this. I peaked. I love you, Elena.
