Powerful Passion/Sorrowful Passion

I am reminded again, this time by Nat Geo, that "passion" has several meanings:

" 'The bottom line is that passion motivates them to create--and passion has two meanings.  It means to suffer, and it means enthusiasm.'  This is Kinshasa, city of art, where travail is muse."  Lye M. Yoka (quoted by Robert Draper in "Kinshasa, Urban Pulse of the Congo," National Geographiic, September. 2013.)
