“We feel cold, but we don’t mind it, because we will not come to harm. And if we wrapped up against the cold, we wouldn’t feel other things, like the bright tingle of the stars, or the music of the aurora, or best of all the silky feeling of moonlight on our skin. It’s worth being cold for that.”
Philip Pullman, The Golden Compass

Art – Wilfred Jenkins (1857-1936), A Country House by Moonlight
