: My mother used to respond to the phrase "Curiosity killed the cat" with " and information brought it back." Any other references to this response? Never heard "satisfaction brought it back".

I used to be an information officer and, before that, a reporter (in the U.S.). So I like that version. But I'd never heard it before.
