Philip left the window and returned to his writing desk. What could be done? For a moment he was tempted to do nothing. Let Bishop Henry come and look, and make his own decision, he thought. If the cathedral is to be built at Shiring, so be it. Let Bishop Waleran take control of it and use it for his own ends; let it bring prosperity to the town of Shiring and the evil Hamleigh dynasty. God’s will be done. He knew that would not do, of course. Having faith in God did not mean sitting back and doing nothing.

Philip is the hero of this book, and he is a sincere and devout believer, whereas I’m an atheist, so Philip presented me with a major challenge.

Philip represents everything that I respect about religion. Philip is less like me than any other major character in my books and, paradoxically, I think he’s the best character I ever created.

The Fall of the House of Usher by Edgar Allan Poe
It was this deficiency, I considered, while running over in thought the perfect keeping of the character of the premises with the accredited character of the people, and while speculating upon the possible influence which the one, in the long lapse of centuries, might have exercised upon the other—it was this deficiency, perhaps, of collateral issue, and the consequent undeviating transmission, from sire to son, of the patrimony with the name, which had, at length, so identified the two as to merge the original title of the estate in the quaint and equivocal appellation of the “House of ...more
