Albert Einstein’s theory of happiness fetched $1.3 million at a Jerusalem auction.
“A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness.”
The story behind this note:
Einstein was traveling in Japan in 1922 when he was told he would be awarded the Nobel Prize in physics. In Tokyo, Einstein scribbled the note in German to a bellboy after he did not have cash to give him a tip. He told the boy that because of his fame, the handwritten note “will probably be worth more than a regular tip.”
Another note Einstein gave the bellboy was sold for over $200,000.
