17 Important Life Lessons Katherine Pierce Taught You on ‘The Vampire Diaries’

When you think of The Vampire DiariesKatherine Pierce (Nina Dobrev), certain words may come to mind such as sarcastic and self-serving. However, beneath that (fabulous) bitchy exterior, Katherine grappled with various vulnerabilities, and even though she often fought to hide it, was more sentimental than she liked to let on. (We’re already tearing up at the image of her at Nadia’s deathbed, bestowing her daughter with a precious vignette of what their life could have been like had they not been torn apart.)

Well, not only did Katherine make us laugh with her cunning comebacks or pull on our heartstrings when she shared a glimpse of her humanity, but she’s also a smart lady who’s taught us some great lessons about life, relationships, and voluminous hair. (No wonder both Damon and Stefan loved her!) So in honor of the most vicious, fabulous vixen in Mystic Falls, we’ve rounded up some of Katherine’s best pearls of wisdom. Enjoy!
