Author has written 16 stories for Vampire Diaries.

My name is Carol. In real life, I'm a Registered Nurse, have worked 12 hour night shifts for many years. Ian's veins are "Nurse Porn'. I love old movies and I adore Cary Grant. He's my favorite. A young Cary sizzled then as Ian does now... Gone With the Wind, Casablanca, Arsenic and Old Lace, Alfred Hitchcock movies as well as anything Cary Grant are my favorites. I have 4 children, 2 of each and every other so I'm very blessed. My youngest daughter sucked me into watching The Vampire Diaries with her. That single act stoked my love for Damon & Elena.

'And on the eighth day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said I need a healer, so God made a nurse'

'The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one who gets the people to do the greatest things.' Ronald Reagan

"Oh, You're only a nurse" the woman said as she walked out of the patient's room.
"Yes", I said. " I'm only the nurse that will help your father survive his heart attack, or your mother her stroke.
I'm only the nurse that held your loved one's hand as they were dying.
I'm only the nurse that will be home 3 hours late to my own family because I am caring for yours.
I'm only the nurse who will be eating with my family and get called to an emergency case in the O.R to take care of you.
I'm only the nurse that will keep your loved one alive while they undergo surgery.
I'm only the nurse who's job it is to not only take care of your loved one, but also take care of your family members so well that they think they are at the Hilton.
I am only the nurse that answers your call light five times in an hour and attends to your needs with a smile, when I have ten other patients who need my help too.
I am only the nurse who stops at the scene of an accident to render help to strangers.
I'm only the nurse that monitors your vital signs and tells the doctor what you need and when.
So, before you tell me I am only a nurse again, think twice...I may save your life one day, but I'm only a nurse?"
M Raines

"You're a nurse? That's cool, I wanted to do that when I was a kid. How much do you make?"
The nurse replied: "HOW MUCH DO I MAKE?" ...
I can make holding your hand seem like the most important thing in the world when you're scared. ...
I can make your child breathe when they stop. ...
I can help your father survive a heart attack. ...
I can make myself get up at 5 a.m. to make sure your mother has the medicine she needs to live. ...
I work all day to save the lives of strangers. ...
I make my family wait for dinner until I know your family member is taken care of. ...
I make myself skip lunch so that I can make sure that everything I did for your wife today is charted. ...
I make myself work weekends and holidays because people don't just get sick Monday thru Friday. ...
Today, I might save your life. ...
How much do I make? All I know is, I make a difference.

Some of my favorite quotes are:

"If we're free to dare - and we are - If we're free to give - and we are - then we're free to shape the future and have within our grasp all we dream that future will be." President Ronald Reagan

"Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives." Ronald Reagan

"Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again." Ronald Reagan

"Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever." Walt Disney

"I don't measure a man's success by how high he climbs but by how high he bounces when he hits bottom." General George S. Patton

"Courage is fear holding on a minute longer." General George S. Patton

"Everyone wants to be Cary Grant—even I want to be Cary Grant" Cary Grant

"You're like the thief who isn't the least bit sorry he stole, but terribly, terribly sorry he's going to jail." Rhett Butler

"You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how." Rhett Butler

"These are the men that took the cliffs. These are the champions who helped free a continent. These are the heroes who helped end a war." Ronald Reagan

"Well, I did. Everyone of 'em. Mostly I remember the last one. The wow finish. A guy standing on a station platform in the rain with a comical look on his face because his insides have been kicked out." Rick Blaine in "Casablanca"

"The annals of war at sea present no more intense, heart shaking shock than these two battles, in which the quality of the United States Navy and Air Force and the American race shone forth in splendor... The bravery and self devotion of the American airmen and sailors and the nerve and skill of their leaders was the foundation of all." Winston Churchill on the battle of Coral Sea May 4-8, 1942 and Midway Island June 4-7, 1942

Winston Churchill, "The destiny of man is not measured by material computations. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we're spirits—not animals. There's something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty."

Ronald Reagan, "You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin—just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard 'round the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazis didn't die in vain. Where, then, is the road to peace?"

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Einstein

"The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in rising again after you fall."-Vince Lombardi

"We have it in our power to begin the world over again. - Thomas Paine

"Freedom is the right to dream–to follow your dream or stick to your conscience even if you're the only one in a sea of doubters." Ronald Reagan

"A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master, and deserves one." - Alexander Hamilton

Fear is what stops you... courage is what keeps you going. -Unknown

'Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty' Thomas Jefferson

“You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terrors. Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.”
- Prime Minister Winston Churchill

"But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost is lost forever." John Adams

'Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." Winston Churchill.

'Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.' Ronald Reagan

"My fellow citizens, our nation is poised for greatness. We must do what we know is right, and do it with all our might. Let history say of us: 'These were golden years -- when the American Revolution was reborn, when freedom gained new life, and America reached for her best.'"
President Ronald Reagan
