„I never want to do material that makes people laugh at the expense of making other people feel bad - not to say I'm not guilty of that at times. …“

Stephanie Bouchard (February 15, 2007) "Pasty-faced and proud of it - Comedian Jim Gaffigan brings his 'Beyond the Pale Tour' to Merrill Auditorium", Portland Press Herald, Blethen Maine Newspapers Inc., D10.
Контексте: I do kind of aspire to do comedy that appeals to a wide range of audiences and doesn't divide people. I never want to do material that makes people laugh at the expense of making other people feel bad - not to say I'm not guilty of that at times.... I try and make humor out of the really important issues of the day, like Hot Pockets and elevators and not wanting to get out of bed.

„I want to make people feel better, whether it’s myself, or a friend, or whoever.“

—  Zooey Deschanel American actress, musician, and singer-songwriter 1980

On her song "Me and You" on Volume Two (2010), in an interview with Evan Schlansky in " On Record : Zooey Deschanel of She & Him http://www.americansongwriter.com/2010/03/on-record-zooey-deschanel-of-she-him/" at American Songwriter (18 March 2010).
Контексте: I think a lot of what motivates me songwriting-wise is — this might sound silly — but, when I listen to a song that I love, it kind of makes me feel better. I think that’s the impetus behind everything I write; I want to make people feel better, whether it’s myself, or a friend, or whoever. I don’t know how to say this without sounding corny or banal, but I know a lot of people who are very hard on themselves. So this is sort of a cheerleading lullaby.
