Hillary Clinton delivered her concession speech on Wednesday, following her loss to now president-elect Donald Trump, and set Twitter ablaze with her classy demeanor and words of encouragement.

As her family looked on, Clinton congratulated Trump on his victory, thanked her supporters, and ensured that she still believed in America. She also took her time in the spotlight to focus on what her loss meant to women across the country.

“The young women who put their faith in this campaign and in me — I want you to know that nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion,” she said. “Now, I know that we have still not shattered that highest, and hardest, glass ceiling, but someday someone will, and hopefully sooner than we might think right now.”

During, and following, the speech, many of Clinton’s famous supporters took to Twitter to express their pride in the Democratic candidate, and repeat her powerful words. Here, we’ve rounded up some of the most powerful.
