Varnish : how to add an exception for dynamic pages with cookies

I would like to know what's the right way to avoid caching "some pages" of a
website using Varnish and cache all the others.

This is what I have tried to do with the vcl conf:

sub vcl_fetch {
        #set beresp.ttl = 1d;
        if (!(req.url ~ "/page1withauth") ||
            !(req.url ~ "/page2withauth")) {
           unset beresp.http.set-cookie;
        if (!beresp.cacheable) {
            return (pass);
        if (beresp.http.Set-Cookie) {
            return (pass);
        return (deliver);
