who said this quote" i would rather live one day as a lion then a lifetime as a lamb"

‘It’s better to live one day as a lion, than a thousand years as a lamb’ is from an infamous 1970 black and white photo, captured by George Rodriguez (a legendary Chicano photographer) featuring a center framed tag on a white wall in an unspecified section of Boyle Heights.

It is where the name One Day As A Lion was taken, a collaboration between Rage Against The Machine front‐man Zack de la Rocha and former Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore.

According to Onedayasalion.org One Day As A Lion is both a warning delivered and a promise kept; a defiant affirmation of the possibilities that exist in the space between kick and snare. It’s a sonic reflection of the visceral tension between a picturesque fabricated cultural landscape, and the brutal socioeconomic realities it attempts to mask.
