fall on in a quote

"I meant that the Chinese people are not aware of their own entrapment. They believe they live in a free society, but don't realize how much they are being monitored and controlled, how much the information they receive is restricted and warped, until they step out of line, that is, and feel the heavy hand of the state fall on them."

"Even if you fall on your face, you're still moving forward."

"Wise sayings often fall on barren ground, but a kind word is never thrown away."
