The quote says, "Prayer of Columbus

All my emprises have been fill'd with Thee
My speculations, plans, begun and carried on in the thought of Thee.
Sailing the deep or journeying the land for Thee:
Intentions, purports, aspirations mine, leaving results to Thee

O I am sure they really came from Thee,
The urge, the ardor, the unconquerable will.
The potent, fell, interior command, stronger than words.
A message from the Heavens whispering to me even in sleep.
These sped me on.

By me and these work so far accomplished
By me earth's cloy'd and stifled lands, unclog'd unloos's,
By me the hemispheres rounded and lied, the unknown to the known"

Walt Whitman
Washington, DC
