„There is mercy in every place,
And mercy, encouraging thought!
Gives even affliction a grace
And reconciles man to his lot.“

„We are constantly railing against the passions; we ascribe to them all of man’s afflictions, and we forget that they are also the source of all his pleasures“

—  Denis Diderot, книга Philosophical thoughts

As translated in Diderot (1977) by Otis Fellows, p. 39
Variant translations:
One declaims endlessly against the passions; one imputes all of man's suffering to them. One forgets that they are also the source of all his pleasures.
Only passions, great passions, can elevate the soul to great things.
Pensées Philosophiques (1746)
Источник: Pensées philosophiques
Контексте: We are constantly railing against the passions; we ascribe to them all of man’s afflictions, and we forget that they are also the source of all his pleasures … But what provokes me is that only their adverse side is considered … and yet only passions, and great passions, can raise the soul to great things. Without them there is no sublimity, either in morals or in creativity. Art returns to infancy, and virtue becomes small-minded.

„I believe in comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable.“

—  Halford E. Luccock American Methodist minister 1885 - 1960

Described as his slogan in "Religion : Go Ye and Relax?" in TIME magazine (20 April 1953) http://content.time.com/time/subscriber/article/0,33009,822783,00.html; this paraphrases the expression of Finley Peter Dunne, in Observations by Mr. Dooley (1902): Th' newspaper does ivrything f'r us. It runs th' polis foorce an' th' banks, commands th' milishy, controls th' ligislachure, baptizes th' young, marries th' foolish, comforts th' afflicted, afflicts th' comfortable, buries th' dead an' roasts thim aftherward.
