I wrote this myself "The proud birds get easily cut down". The intended meaning is "One who's overly proud is easily to be seen and therefore be get rid of".

I believe there's an idiom/proverb in English but I can't think of that.

Someone suggested "The nail that sticks out gets hammered down" but I think it doesn't fit here.
