"An insult is like a drink; it affects one only if accepted. And pride is too heavy baggage for my journey; I have none.”

With much gratitude, as always,

I would suggest:

Ut potus, sic maledictum tum solum hominem afficit cum ultro susceptum est. Superbia autem gravior sarcina est quam ut eam meo in itinere portem; nullam habeo.

Maledictum is literally "(a thing) badly said", hence a verbal insult. Contumelia is any kind of insulting treatment, verbal or otherwise. If you like contumelia then you could have:

Ut potus, sic contumelia tum solum hominem afficit cum ultro suscepta est.
