Looking Scared

"Maybe sometimes we don't do the right thing because the wrong thing looks more dangerous, and we don't want to look scared, so we go and do the wrong thing just because it's dangerous. We're more concerned with not looking scared than with judging right. It's very hard."
Philip Pullman, The Amber Spyglass [Part 3 of His Dark Materials Trilogy]

Do you have an ebook copy of His Dark Materials Trilogy??
I'd like to read it but cant find it anywhere...Thanks if u can help!
Wonderful lines Awais, you seem to have a great taste in reading interesting material.

Also from the same book a conversation between Lyra and Iorek.

“Can is not the same as must.”
“But if you must and you can, then there’s no excuse.”
“While you are alive, your business is with life.”
“No, Iorek,” she said gently, “our business is to keep promise, no matter how difficult they are.”
