Top quotes:

I'm sorry that we did not win this election ...

Being your candidate has been one of the greatest honors of my life.

I know how disappointed you feel, because I feel it, too, and so do tens of millions of Americans ... This is painful, and it will be for a long time ... Our campaign was never about one person, or even about one election.

We have seen our nation is more deeply divided than we thought.

We must accept this, though, and then look to the future.

Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind ...

Let's do all we can to keep advancing the values and causes we all hold dear.

I am so grateful to stand with all of you.

To the Obamas: We thank you for your graceful and determined leadership.

To her family: My love for you means more than I can ever express.

To secret supporters: Make sure your voices are heard goin' forward.

To the young people in particular ... I've had successes and I've had setbacks, sometimes really painful ones. Many of you are at the beginning of your ... careers. You will have setbacks, too. This loss hurts, but please, never stop believing that fighting for what's right is worth it. And so, we need you to keep up these fights and for the rest of your lives.

And to all the women and especially 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.

I know that I haven't shattered that hightest and hardest glass ceiling, but someday, someone will, and hopefully sooner than we might think right now.

To little girls: ... you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams.

If we stand together and work together with respect for our differences, strength in our convictions and love for our nation, our best days are still ahead of us.
