Stefan Salvatore, one of the main characters on "The Vampire Diaries," is probably the sweetest vampire on television. When someone is turned into a vampire on this show, their character traits heighten to a more extreme level. As a human, Stefan cared about other people's feelings and loved with his whole heart. As a vampire, this special part of him heightened, especially when he fell in love with Elena Gilbert. Here are the top five sweetest Stefan Salvatore quotes from both Season 1 and Season 2.

Quote #1: "Well I compelled the guard to go on break so I could kiss my girlfriend on the top of the Ferris wheel." (Season 2, Episode 2)

Stefan and Elena's relationship is constantly strained by complications with Damon, the original vampires, and the friends and family they are keeping secrets from. It is hard to date a vampire, especially with all the baggage from Stefan's past. He says this quote to Elena after a long day of dealing with everything that goes wrong with their lives. He wants to be able to truly experience life with Elena.

Quote #2: "Ok, how about this. Today when we're fighting, if I say 'I can't do this anymore Elena,' what I really mean is that I love you." (Season 2, Episode 5)

Quote #3: "I just want to spend as much time with you as possible." (Season 1, Episode 19)

Stefan says this to Elena after he finally returns to school after a terrifying experience with human blood. Since in Season 1 he only survived on animal blood, just a small contact with human blood sent him out of control. He was forced to stay away from Elena for a few days so once he returned, he wanted her to know how much he missed her.

Quote #4: "Elena is warm and kind and caring and selfless, and it's real. And honestly, when I'm around her, I completely forget what I am." (Season 1, Episode 8)

In Season 1, Elena broke up with Stefan when she first found out he was a vampire. Stefan says this to his vampire friend Lexi when she questions him about the physical similarities between Elena and Katherine. He describes Elena as someone completely different than Katherine and finally admits that he is in love with her.

Quote #5: "This is a future memory; it's where your boyfriend whispered to you that he loved you." (Season 2, Episode 14)

With everything that is going on back home, Stefan and Elena decide they are going to go away for the weekend to spend some time together. Stefan speaks these words into her ear as they are overlooking the water.

Stefan and Elena's relationship is so strong and powerful on "The Vampire Diaries." They are tested over and over again by those around them and each time, they are able to make it through. Although Stefan is a vampire, Elena sees a man with a pure heart. It also helps that he is always saying the sweetest things to her.
