What's inscribed inside the House chamber?

Our friend Congressman Mike Pence of Ohio pointed out yesterday that there is only one quote inscribed inside the chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives:

Let us develop the resources of our land, call forth its powers, build up its institutions, promote all its great interests and see whether we also, in our day and generation, may not perform something worthy to be remembered. – Daniel Webster

At the TIME glossy infotainment mag’s “blog” (linked), they think that Daniel Webster’s quote is naught but “More Hot Air.”
