“Your parents are monsters, Emma! They banished me and threw you in a wardrobe. And now here you are, ready to die for them … because you’re so perfect. The Savior. Well, they deserve to be punished, and there’s only one way to stop me, and you know it.” - Lily (4x19)

Lily: Unfortunately, Damon doesn’t feel the same way about forgiveness.
Stefan: Look, you were the first woman to break his heart. He’s put up a wall ever since, but you can take it down.
Lily: No. He’s gone. I saw it in his eyes. He- he wishes me dead.
Stefan: Do you think that I haven’t seen that look before? Damon has been practicing that look on me for the last 150 years.
Lily: Well, then maybe you could offer your mother a little advice in return. How do I get him back?
Stefan: Time.

I’m a ripper. All of the guilt you’ve carried for your lack of control, it’s my fault, not yours. You get it from me. That’s why I had to leave. I was so new to the bloodlust, I was afraid I would hurt you and your brother. The last time I saw you was the day of my funeral. You weren’t imagining it. I was your angel. If only I’d been there to see you grow into a young man, to protect you from your father’s temper, but I was so ashamed of the things that I’d done, of what I’d become, and by the time I got my appetite under control and was coming back for you and your brother, I was hunted down and banished to a prison world by the Gemini. The one thing that helped you get through being trapped in that awful place was the hope of seeing my sons again. I know there are no words that make up for me abandoning you, but we have all of eternity for me to try.
