Are There Any Problems With This List?
This is a typical list of commercial maxims. They seem to be copied & re-pasted mindlessly.Can you decide for yourself that each one is true? Or do you believe gurus?

Because there are three classes of intellects: one which comprehends by itself; another which appreciates what others comprehend; and a third which neither comprehends by itself nor by the showing of others; the first is the most excellent, the second is good, the third is useless.”

Niccolò Machiavelli
