For us, sons of France, political sentiment is a passion; while, for the Englishmen, politics are a question of business.

I visualise what I want through meditation. The process of meditating is a great way of making sure I have my priorities sorted. It’s not about money – I focus on my career and the kind of film projects I want to do. Film-making is a passion for me, and my mantra is that you should do what you love, and the money will follow.

For me, music is sort of my passion, more so than being an actor. I just never tried to make a career as a musician. It was just something that I did on my own time, just for me. I had written a lot of songs, but I don’t really record a lot of music because, for me, it’s the same way as a poet: I write to get things out. It’s sort of cathartic.

More than half of my former students teach – elementary and high school, community college and university. I taught them to be passionate about literature and writing, and to attempt to translate that passion to their own students. They are rookie teachers, most likely to be laid off and not rehired, even though they are passionate.

It’s hard to tell with these Internet startups if they’re really interested in building companies or if they’re just interested in the money. I can tell you, though: If they don’t really want to build a company, they won’t luck into it. That’s because it’s so hard that if you don’t have a passion, you’ll give up.
