Famous quotes containing the word curiosity:

    There are several sorts of curiosity: a curiosity of self-interest, for example, which makes us desire to learn things that may be useful to us; and one of pride, which proceeds from an itch to know more than other people.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Our books are false by being fragmentary: their sentences are bon mots, and not parts of natural discourse; childish expressions of surprise or pleasure in nature; or, worse, owing a brief notoriety to their petulance, or aversion from the order of nature,—being some curiosity or oddity, designedly not in harmony with nature, and purposely framed to excite surprise, as jugglers do by concealing their means.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
