„Be less curious about people and more curious about ideas.“

— Мария Склодовская-Кюри, Response to a reporter seeking an interview during a vacation with her husband in Brittany, who mistaking her for a housekeeper, asked her if there was anything confidential she could recount, as quoted in Living Adventures in Science‎ (1972), by Henry Thomas and Dana Lee Thomas <!-- Pierre died in 1906, so this comment dates to before that time, possibly to a trip in 1897 --> Variant: In science, we must be interested in things, not in persons. This is stated to be a declaration she often made to reporters, in Madame Curie : A Biography (1937) by Eve Curie Labouisse, as translated by Vincent Sheean, p. 222
