I think what it means is that, if you are a coward, you loose so much opportunity to achieve something glorious. Even though a valiant do need to face obstacles and challenges in life, but if u step up and try your best to fix it or defeat it, then what's left is just the death that'll eventually come. Cowards dodge and escape from these problems. They will never learn since they never tried to over come such mistakes. They are like new born babies that has no experience in life. With more experience, u are more "durable" and flexible in life~~

i thought the same way when i heard this quote, a coward ususally lowers their pride and their self to fit for others or often to even survive. So in this case, Caesar/Shakespeare is implying symbolically, a man dies when their pride is lost.
I think this quote means that cowards fear death that they imagine of themselves falling to their death many times such as being stabbed by someone, commiting suicide, getting killed in a car accident, etc. It's like they are dying in their minds many time. Unlike the cowards, brave people do not fear death.

I think cowards die because they don't go out and do things that make a person really alive because they're afraid of dying. Also, they probably imagine themselves dying a lot. Brave people scream YOLO at everything they're about to do, and don't look back. Let alone think about death.
The people who are brave don't think before doing anything dangerous but cowards always think of the danger and they fear it leading i to stress which is not a good feeling I thnk this is what the quote says.
