I've been rewriting a known quote:
Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back.
I used the Present Perfect and turned the quote into:
Curiosity has killed the cat, but satisfaction brought it back.
I'm not sure whether it should be "... but satisfaction has brought it back", since I started with Present Perfect. But "... satisfaction brought it back" feels more natural.
I think it makes more sense because the satisfaction just simply "brought it back", it's not something that is continuing to happen in the past, even though the curiosity that killed the cat is an optionally on-going event, so it also makes the next related event to be a part of it and become on-going, although, I also believe the usage of Present Perfect in the beginning gets the rest of the sentence included and for that reason you won't need to double-use Present Perfect.
Uuuh. Thanks in advance. :)
