Alfred was obsessed by order, obsessed by the task of marshaling life’s chaos into something that could be controlled. He would do it by the church and by the law, which are much the same thing, but I wanted to see a pattern in the strands of life. In the end I found one, and it had nothing to do with any god, but with people. With the people we love. […]We are all lonely and all seek a hand to hold in the darkness. It is not the harp, but the hand that plays it.

~ The Last Kingdom (Bernard Cornwell)
