Somebody once said–I’ve forgot who–said you can take away a man’s gods… but only to give him others in return. […] Wasn’t until after I’d left the seminary that I understood what that really meant. You don’t walk away from a thing you’d thought you believed your whole life without the loss of it leaving a hole in you, hungering to be filled. You’ve still a need to believe in something… it’s just a question of what.

― Brian Hodge, The Dripping of Sundered Wineskins (From Love in Vein II)
