“Heaven is totally overrated” by Joel Stein

“Heaven is totally overrated. It seems boring. Clouds, listening to people play the harp. It should be somewhere you can’t wait to go, like a luxury hotel. Maybe blue skies and soft music were enough to keep people in line in the 17th century, but Heaven has to step it up a bit. They’re basically getting by because they only have to be better than Hell.”

–Joel Stein, “The Way I See It #230.” Stein is a columnist for the Los Angeles Times. I read this quote on a Starbucks cup that contained a delicious cafe Americano.
