List of Investment Mantras

Let's collect a list of investment mantras here!
If possible, let's also add the circumstances / market conditions that make them valid (or not).
1. "When confident, concentrate; when doubtful diversify". When is this considered a sensible advice?
2. "Don't put all your eggs in one basket". In what kind of circumstances is this a smart strategy?
3. "Buy at bottom + 1 and sell at top -1". Is this a good strategy? If not why? If yes when?

Investment Mantras: 4. Keep your Eyes Open - a Mantra Worth Keeping in Mind

4. "Keep your Eyes Open. Base your theory on facts. Don't filter facts to suit your your theory".
I found this one in an investment book. Says that you should keep digging and even one deviation from your theory can be a valid reason to make a new assumption and a new theory.
The investor faces a time versus safety dilemma.
