    過份好奇是危險的;好管閒事往往惹來一身麻煩。少管閒事;好奇心可以殺死一隻貓。

    典故:

    Curiosity killed the cat - Be cautious when investigating situations.

    The saying originally was "care kills a cat," and began in the 16th century. "Care" was a warning that worry is bad for your health and can lead to an early grave; the phrase was a recognition that cats seem to be very cautious and careful. Over time, the word "care" evolved into "curiosity."
