Isn't it meant to be "The higher you climb, the harder you fall"...?
Unless it was a translation of a Polish version of it...

I also thought it reads rather strange and I had something like the phrase in mind you suggested. It's probably something like this: link.

Vigo alinbut, æ'denvial elvulrasbut.

if more-high-COP.3SG.INAN, DEF.CONC=fall more-painful-COP.3SG.INAN
The higher, the more painful the fall.

New words/phrases:

I rethought how Yélian handles the...the constructions. Now, it uses two classifiers, al- and el-, that only work together and only in this context. A phrase like this, however, will always require the conjunction vigo "if", and the adjectives themselves (lin and vulras in this example) are put in the positive form, not in the comparative.
Furthermore, there is one new word:

vulras [ˈvulɾɐʃ] - painful
Etymology: from vulra "to be painful" + adjectivizer -as.
Wipe the glass. This is the usual way to start, even in the days, day and night, only a happy one.

My English version is “the bigger they are, the harder they fall”.
