Rumford On Curiosity

"It is really astonishing how little attention is paid to events which happen frequently, however interesting they may be as objects of curious investigation, or however they may be connected with the comforts and enjoyments of life. Things near us, and which are familiar to us, are seldom objects of our meditations. How few persons are there who ever took the trouble to bestow a thought on the subject in question, though it is, in the highest degree, curious and interesting!"

- "Observations Concerning Open Chimney Fireplaces" - 1798
