Many Minnesotans feel a strong connection to their home state, and have spoken and written about it. This exhibit contains a selection of quotes from Minnesota’s artists, authors, musicians, leaders, and other residents about their homes, lives, and community. Organized into the categories of People, Place, Natural World, Identity, and Inspiration, and accompanied by images from the Minnesota Digital Library, the quotes provide a window into the Minnesota experience.

Explore these stories via “Quotable Minnesota.”
