Tumblr Thread Reveals True Meaning & Full Versions Of Classic Proverbs

I can't remember the first time I was told that "curiosity killed the cat" but it was probably by my mother. The petite neurotic woman was convinced that at any moment something terrible was about to happen to one of her brood. While it's been many years since I realized the adage was antithetical to a rich and full life, it wasn't until this Tumblr thread that I realized there was more to the proverb. As it turns out, the phrase is not meant to ward off healthy curiosity. The thread doesn't stop the splainin' there, either. We've never felt more sure of ourselves regarding the use of tired proverbs. Knowledge truly is power.

tumblr thread about the full version of classic proverbs | curiosity killed cat is actually not full phrase actually is"curiosity killed cat but satisfaction brought back" so don't let anyone tell not be curious little baby okay go and be interested world See also: Blood is thicker than water- blood covenant is thicker than water womb. Meaning relationships formed by choice are stronger than those formed by birth.
