"She turned away. Behind them lay pain and death and fear; ahead of them lay doubt, and danger, and fathomless mysteries. But they weren’t alone. So Lyra and her daemon turned away from the world they were born in, and looked toward the sun, and walked into the sky"
Lyra Silvertongue from the His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman, for the Ladies of Literature charity artbook run by Arielle!
