Need help with referencing a quote

I would like to ask the knowledgeable people here about a source for a quote. Namely I believe most of practising people have heard about the story of Achnai’s furnace, and at the very end Rabbi Eliezer ben Hurcanos prostrates at which point Rabban Gamliel dies and Ima Shalom proclaims something along the lines of: “Get up, you killed my brother”. Now, I remember learning a long time ago about a quote that goes something like “When the tzadikim fall (prostrate) before G-d, their enemies also fall (prostrate) before them”. I just can’t remember where I read that and I’ve been breaking my brain for a month over it now. None of my friends know either. Anyone happens to have heard this before, where’s the source for it?
