I was reading "Une aventure parisienne" by Maupassant;
his description of the main character's curiosity was interesting.
I did not translate it and this is in the original language of
Maupassant: "Une femme, quand sa curiosite impatiente
est en eveil, commettra toutes les folies, toutes les imprudences,
aura toutes les audaces, ne reculera devant rien."
