    Literally it means that if you're on a low level you can't fall down.
    Metaphorically it means that if you're not proud and full of yourself then you don't need to be afraid of being humiliated or belittled.

    We are such stuff as dreams are made on.

    "We are such stuff
    As dreams are made on and our little life
    Is rounded with a sleep..."
    --From The Tempest (IV, i, 156-157)

    In relation to the world, man has a short life which ends in death.
