5 Classic Kevin Costner Quotes in this Interview.

  • “I’ve lived many places, but Ventura is where I’m from”
  • “Dreams are really important and how you follow your dreams is important too, good ideas don’t come to you sitting still.”
  • As a child moving to Ojai, Kevin says to his Dad “Is this hevan?” His Dad responds, “No, it’s Topa Lane.” Ojai, CA.
  • “The idea that you’re going to worry about people think as you’re trying to make your way is something you’ve got to shake off.”
  • “When I drive through Ventura (on the 101, as I’m) passing the Pierpont Inn, I have to wipe away the memories.”
