So long as man remains free he strives for nothing so incessantly and so painfully as to find someone to worship. —Dostoevsky

I don’t know the context for this so I might be misinterpreting it, and I would replace ‘someone’ with ‘something’, then it is spot on. I find my thoughts running, “well, at least there is truth here” when considering some institution, (often historical) individual or piece of writing, over and over and over again.
