Here are two more for your list:

Above the figure of "Poetry" in the Thomas Jefferson Building in the Library of Congress:

Hither as to thir Fountain other Starrs
Repairing, in thir gold'n Urns draw Light

- Paradise Lost, Book VII.364-65

And in the Great Hall of the Folger Shakespeare Library, above the doorway:

What needs my Shakespear for his honour'd Bones,
The Labour of an age in piled Stones,
Thou in our wonder and astonishment
Hast built thy self a live-long Monument.

- On Shakespear. 1630, 1-2, 7-8
