An American news paper man tracked the curies down to the remote cottage in Brittany where they were vacationing. He found a rather dowdy woman sitting outside the floor.
Are you the house keeper? He began.
“Is your mistress inside?”
Will she be back soon?”
“I don’t think so.”
The reporter sat down. “Can you tell me something confidential about mistress? He went on.
“Madam Curie has only one message that she likes to be given to the reporters.” said Madam Curie.
That is:” Be less curious about people and more curious about ideas.”
