$f \in C^2(\mathbb R)$ , $(f(x))^2 \le 1$ ; $(f'(x))^2+(f''(x))^2 \le 1 $ ; then is $(f(x))^2+(f'(x))^2 \le 1 $?

Let $f \in C^2(\mathbb R)$ be such that $$(f(x))^2 \le 1 ; (f'(x))^2+(f''(x))^2 \le 1 , \forall x \in \mathbb R$$ Then is it true that $(f(x))^2+(f'(x))^2 \le 1 , \forall x \in \mathbb R$ ? I ...
