proofread my sentence
I just read an Arabic phrase that I liked. I translated into English but don't know if there is any mistakes and if it makes sense.
I'll write all insults I receive on papers and put it under my feet. The more they increase, the more I become high
Is there any English equivalent?

of a saying that is a little bit similar:
The dogs bark, but the caravan [a group of people]
(i) In other words, when you try to do something, there will always
be some people who criticize you ("barking dogs"), but you
(the "caravan") ignore the barking dogs and keep moving on (doing
what you were doing).
For example, sometimes you see dogs barking at a passing car. But the
driver ignores the dogs and keeps on driving. The dogs' barking does
not show that they are strong but that they are afraid. So some people
who "bark" at you are weak, not strong. You ignore them and continue.
(3) By the way, some people say that this saying also comes from the
people in the Middle East. I do not know whether that is true.
