"The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity."

My collection lists this as Ellen Parr. I received an email suggesting that it could be Dorothy Parker.

After a bit of research it looks like many people are attributing this to Ellen Parr, but they may be duplicating my error long ago. A few people attribute it to Parker, but they seem suspicious since many of the lists are exactly the same and nothing authoritative lists it.

Meanwhile, I can't find any record of a (famous) Ellen Parr at all - 90% of the references to that name on the Web are in conjunction with this same quote.

Any opinions? I guess I'll have to crack open some books.
