Anonymity does not shade a lamp

I was having a dream and someone used an expression that made perfect sense.

They said: "Anonymity does not shade a lamp."

It meant that some bright idea would not remain hidden simply because the inventor is unknown.

Brilliance will out.

I can find no trace of such an expression and somehow my brain made this up during my dream.
