Is Rest Ever a Goal Worth Achieving?

In 12 Years a Slave, Solomon Northup concludes his book with the hope that he will be able to rest at the end of his labors. What he seems to mean is not a rest, while he is still alive, but a rest, after he is gone.

Why did Solomon look forward to resting “at last in the church yard where my father sleeps?”

Do you think that was a reasonable goal, after all he had endured and overcome in his lifetime? Explain your answer.
