有人可以告訴這個隱喻什麼意思

You can die on St. Helena without being Napoleon.

這似乎與歷史和拿破崙的生活有關。我在Paul Fryantanswer的Quora上找到了問題What is the most beautiful metaphor you have ever come across? What does it mean?的隱喻

Napoleon died in exile on St. Helena, but many people have died there without being Napoleon.

This is a metaphor for how various similarities to great figures do not mean you yourself are great. It is impossible to tell without context, but it may additionally hold the connotation that the person is claiming greatness on the basis of being metaphorically exiled to St. Helena, that is, suffering because of the actions of others.
