It's probably not worth racking your brains all that much, it wouldn't surprise me if no such saying exists, people (Americans at least) love to make up their own sayings and claim they have a Chinese provenance. Whenever I see a probable example I feel like making a note of it, if I weren't too lazy to do so I'd probably have a nice, long list by now. Of course, on the one hand Chinese isn't my native language and on the other it's hard to prove a negative, still and all it's a common phenomenon in English (the American variety anyhow).
