Curiosity killed the cat

Curiosity killed the cat:

Entre l’arbre et l’écorce, il ne faut pas mettre le doigt : don’t poke your finger between the bark and the tree.

This is also expressed in an Arabic proverb as ‘Don’t get between the onion and its skin’.

Taken from: Don’t toss Granny in the Begonias: faut pas pousser mémé dans les bégonias. Par Marie-Hélène Claudel-Gilly et Primrose Arnander.
