North Dakota is where Teddy Roosevelt chose to temporarily step away from the city life he had known in New York, and re-find himself after personal tragedy. The man who emerged from North Dakota was one of the toughest leaders and insightful conservationists this country has seen. Roosevelt’s experience in ND are one of several reasons you may want to take a closer look at the Peace Garden State.
Below are 4 quotes to help paint a clearer picture of what North Dakota has to offer:
- “I do not believe there ever was any life more attractive to a vigorous young fellow than life on a cattle ranch in those days. It was a fine, healthy life, too; it taught a man self-reliance, hardihood, and the value of instant decision…I enjoyed the life to the full.” – Theodore Roosevelt
- “I have always said I would not have been President had it not been for my experience in North Dakota. It was here that the romance of my life began.” – Theodore Roosevelt
- “While many states are confronting severe budget shortfalls and dragging economies, North Dakota has a different sort of problem. It’s stuck deciding how best to deal with a budget surplus. Yes, a surplus!” -CBS News, 2011
- “There are many jobs available in North Dakota, and the unemployment rate usually hovers around half of the national average.” -Tough Nickel
