Three Days, Three Quotes Challenge

Thank you Shayma for the nomination, I was pleasantly surprised.

Rules of the challenge:

  • Three quotes for three days.
  • Three nominees each day (no repetition).
  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Inform the nominees.

 

My first quote for this three days quotes challenge:

“Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die.” – Peter Tosh

Origin of the Quote: This quote is a line from a Peter Tosh song titled Equal Rights released in 1977. The song speaks to the injustices faced by millions of people around the world during that time, specifically Black people in South Africa and the Palestinians with Israel. Based on the struggles Black people are facing in America today with police shootings, this song is still relevant.

What It Means: This quote is about sacrificing for a goal or a reward. You can’t expect to go to ‘heaven’ or achieve success unless you ‘die’ or work extremely hard for whatever it is you want.

In the context of the song: talking about equal rights, justice, and equality, if people want justice and equality then they have to fight and risk dying to get it.

In the most literal sense: everyone that believes in the afterlife would want to go to heaven, but even though these people know that death is a foregone conclusion, they don’t welcome death, even to get to heaven.
