Paul Wesley, who is most popular as your favourite vampire Stefan Salvatore (tied with brother Damon Salvatore), celebrates his 33rd birthday on Thursday, 23 July. The Polish-American actor has appeared in many popular movies and TV shows, but it is his performance in "The Vampire Diaries" that garnered him most fans and stardom, and more importantly led him to meet his girlfriend Phoebe Tonkins – Hayley from "The Originals".

In celebration of Wesley's birthday, let us flash back on some of the best quotes from his character Stefan Salvatore, over the six seasons:

I'll Wed You in the Golden Summertime (Season 6 Episode 21)

Elena: People are uncomfortable around Salvatores in tuxes. It stirs...feelings.

Stefan: Uh oh. Elena's human again. Am I sensing another brother swap?

Total Eclipse of the Heart (Season 5 Episode 13)

Stefan: You know what makes somebody walk a straight line? When they have no choice but to be the balance for somebody who's about to fall off the edge.

 We'll Always Have Bourbon Street  (Season 4 Episode 8)

Damon: It's an omission for the greater good.

Stefan: Oh, I see. I see. That's Damon speak for, "let's not do the right thing. Let's just do what's right for me.

 Dangerous Liaisons (Season 3 Episode 14)

Stefan: Do you really think I want to be this person? I hurt you Elena. I bit you. I hate myself for what I did to you.

Elena: Then show it. Do something. Stefan, anything is better than trying to convince me that you don't' care... Stefan?

Stefan: If I let myself care all I feel is pain.

Brave New World (Season 2 Episode 2)

Elena: Stefan, what are we doing here? We're going to get caught.

Stefan: Well I compelled the guard to go on breaks so I could kiss my girlfriend, onto of the Ferris Wheel. [Ferris Wheel lights up]

Miss Mystic Falls (Season 1 Episode 19)

Stefan: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm not very good to be around right now, I'm a little bit on the edge. I've been drinking the human stuff and it's really screwing with my head. She knows now. God! She wasn't supposed to find out, I didn't want her to find out, now everything's ruined.

Amber: You seem sad. (He laughs)

Stefan: I'm not sad. I'm freaking hungry!
