"Cowards die many times before their deaths but the Brave taste of death but once" #Quote 7 : 10 Jan
The Coward Dies a Thousand Deaths
You've already probably figured out that, in this quotation, Shakespeare is drawing a comparison between someone who is a coward that is, someone who is afraid to face the challenges of life, such as dealing with difficult situations, taking risks, and fighting for what he or she believe in and someone who is valiant that is, someone who is brave in facing the challenges of life, is never afraid to face difficult or risky situations, and will always fight for what he or she believes in. When you look at just the first part of the quotation, "Cowards die many times before their deaths," try to think of how someone can actually "die many times" before they actually die.

Now take the second part of the quotation, "The valiant never taste of death but once. So, Shakespeare isn't using death as a metaphor in this part of the quotation.
