From Mandella's Robben Island Bible (i.e. the complete works of Shakespeare), now on display at the British Museum. This passage was highlighted in pen.

"Cowards die many times before their deaths;
The valiant never taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard,
It seems to me most strange that men should fear;
Seeing that death, a necessary end,
Will come when it will come."

William Shakespeare, "Julius Caesar", Act 2 scene 2
Greatest English dramatist & poet (1564 - 1616)
