A missing aphorism about bending/bowing/something.

I've half-forgotten a maxim of the form "X bends/bows/comes to Y; Y does not bend/bow/come to X." I'm pretty sure one half is usually not said, only implied. It means something like, depending on level of cynicism and accuracy of my memory, "you gotta make your own way and make an effort", "you're a small fry in this context so get used to it" or "you're dealing with a force of nature here". Any thoughts?
