Is there any fixed saying in English which can encompass the mesaage that you should not get proud of what you have or what you are; because as you got famous/wealthy/etc. you might get weak or poor... some day. [There is a belief in our culture which says: there is no permanent situation for a person in life; your power may disappear one day as you couldn't believe to get what you are now (a powerful one).]
We have a proverb which says:
- There is a downhill for every uphill. (Literally traslated)
The only equivalent I've come across to in English is:
- High places have their precipices
I had a good research about it, but still I'm not sure if it can encompass these believes or not!
The only thing that I found is that It's quoted in Cassell's Dictionary of Proverbs (London 2003) High places have their precipices.
I know another saying, but still I don't know if you use it in this sense or not:
- Every tide has its ebb.
So I would appreciate it if you could help me with it.
