“Like me!" I said. "I have to work hard, too. Why, I haven't thrown manure in over two months!”

“My idea of Heaven has nothing to do with fluffy clouds or angels. In my Heaven there's butter pecan ice cream and swimming pools and baseball games. The Brooklyn Dodgers always win, and I have the best seat in the house, right behind the Dodger's dugout. That's the only advantage that I can see about being dead: You get the best seat in the house.”
Jennifer Holm, Penny from Heaven

“Almost dying is awfully easy. It's the living that's hard.”
