|English term or phrase: satisfaciton brought him back|
|...I found myself curiouser and curiouser about the dude called Edg.Curiosity killed the cat, saying goes, and satisfaciton brought him back.|
Curiosity killed the cat ... and satisfaction brought him back... to life!
CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT – Anyone who has cats knows they tend to poke their feline noses everywhere. That could be dangerous. The "Random House Dictionary of Popular Proverbs and Sayings" (1996) by Gregory Titelman states: "An overly inquisitive person is likely to get hurt. Children are usually warned against curiosity. The proverb was first attested in the United States in 1909. In 1921, it was used by (playwright) Eugene O’Neill…(A variation is) ‘Curiosity killed the cat: satisfaction brought him back…’"
Don't be too curious or you might have to face the consequences... but then again, one day you might know it all. http://www.hray.com/idiom/php/idiom.php?idiomid=1246
