We are a blog dedicated to the relationship between Damon Salvatore and Elena Gilbert of The Vampire Diaries.
"What I'm about to say...is probably the most selfish thing I've ever said in my life. I just have to say it once. You just need to hear it. I love you, Elena. And it's because I love you, that I can't be selfish with you. Why you can't know this. I don't deserve you. But my brother does. God, I wish you didn't have to forget this. But you do." - Damon Salvatore -2x08
"I’m not sorry that I met you. I’m not sorry that knowing you has made me question everything, That in death you’re the one that made me feel most alive. You’ve been a terrible person. You made all the wrong choices and of all the choices that I’ve made this will prove to be the worst one, but I am not sorry that I’m in love with you. I love you, Damon." - Elena Gilbert - 4x23
Lust or lechery (carnal “luxuria”) is an intense desire. It is usually thought of as excessive sexual want; however, the word was originally a general term for desire. Therefore lust could involve the intense desire of money, food, fame, or power as well. In Dante’s Purgatorio, the penitent walks within flames to purge himself of lustful/sexual thoughts and feelings. In Dante’s Inferno, unforgiven souls of the sin of lust are blown about in restless hurricane-like winds symbolic of their own lack of self-control to their lustful passions in earthly life.
