It seems to me whoever said curiosity killed the cat was — wrong.   Every dead cat I know – and they’re all over the place – has more likely gone to the grave from a lack of curiosity.  Be warned:  it will kill you too.

Of course, there is another way of looking at the adage: that curious people will be blocked and stifled.  In this context, it makes lots of  sense.

Dorothy Parker’s observations cast boredom as an illness and curiosity as the miracle cure.  It’s an idea a world away from curiosity as a killer of cats.

“The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.”

Dorothy Parker
