How are general quotes even useful in the least?

Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great. — John D. Rockefeller”

This to be helpful would mean that you knew what’s good and knew what’s great — and in addition you could control your fear reasonably well — you would still not go for the great.

That is actually stupid, you would obviously go for the great of you could control your fear and you certainly wouldn’t need the quote for that. So what is the quote here good for?

Because if you don’t know what’s good and great or you can’t control your fear, the quote doesn’t help either.

So, in any case, the quote doesn’t help.

So this culture of uplifting quotes, instead of focusing on clear questions with clear answers, really nurtures a misleading cloud.
