Lemma 13.36.6. Let $\mathcal{D}$ be a triangulated category which has a strong generator. Let $E$ be an object of $\mathcal{D}$. If $E$ is a classical generator of $\mathcal{D}$, then $E$ is a strong generator.

**Proof.**
Let $E'$ be an object of $\mathcal{D}$ such that $\mathcal{D} = \langle E' \rangle _ n$. Since $\mathcal{D} = \langle E \rangle $ we see that $E' \in \langle E \rangle _ m$ for some $m \geq 1$ by Lemma 13.36.2. Then $\langle E' \rangle _1 \subset \langle E \rangle _ m$ hence

as desired. Here we used Lemma 13.36.1. $\square$
