„The show of weeping and of ruth
To the forlorn will all men pay,
But of the grief their eyes display,
Nought to the heart doth pierce its way.
And, with the joyous, they beguile
Their lips unto a feigned smile.“

—  Aeschylus, Agamemnon

Original: (el) Τῷ δυσπραγοῦντί τ' ἐπιστενάχειν
πᾶς τις ἑτοῖμος· δῆγμα δὲ λύπης

ἀγέλαστα πρόσωπα βιαζόμενοι.

Entry in the journal of the Lewis and Clark Expedition (November 7, 1805). Clark believed that the Corps of Discovery had sighted the Pacific http://www.nationalgeographic.com/lewisandclark/journey_leg_13.html; in fact, the body of water seen was the estuary of the Columbia River, some 20 miles from the coast. The quote, with spelling corrected http://itre.cis.upenn.edu/~myl/languagelog/archives/001496.html, was for a time featured on the reverse of the nickel coin in 2005 as part of the "Westward Journey" series commemorating the bicentennial of Lewis and Clark's expedition.
