Curiosity quotes

Oscar Wilde
The public have an insatiable curiosity to know everything. Except what is worth knowing. Journalism, conscious of this, and having tradesmanlike habits, supplies their demands.

Jeremy Taylor
Curiosity is the direct incontinence of the spirit.

Blaise Pascal
Curiosity is only vanity. Most frequently we wish not to know, but to talk. We would not take a sea voyage for the sole pleasure of seeing without hope of ever telling.

Woodrow Wilson
Only free peoples can hold their purpose and their honor steady to a common end and prefer the interest of mankind to any narrow interest of their own.

Rudyard Kipling
I keep six honest servingmen, They taught me all I knew Their names are What and Why and When And How and Where and Who.

E. M. Forster
Curiosity is one of the lowest of the human faculties. You will have noticed in daily life that when people are inquisitive they nearly always have bad memories and are usually stupid at bottom.

Luis Bunuel
All my life I've been harassed by questions: Why is something this way and not another? How do you account for that? This rage to understand, to fill in the blanks, only makes life more banal. If we could only find the courage to leave our destiny to chance, to accept the fundamental mystery of our lives, then we might be closer to the sort of happiness that comes with innocence.

Eugene O'Neill
Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back
