Albert Einstein's 'happiness notes' sold for whopping 1.5 million dollars in Jerusalem
Jerusalem : Einstein’s written note on happiness has been auctioned for a hefty price of 1.5 million dollars.
While the debate continues over monetary role in buying happiness, the Einstein's theory of happiness has certainly marked a big price tag on it.
The two notes which mentioned about Einstein's theory of happiness were recently bought in Jerusalem for a whopping $1.56 million.
There is an interesting saying regarding the notes. It has been learned that in 1922, Einstein was in Japan for some lectures, he received a courier there and did not had any money to tip the delivery boy, so decided to give the notes to him saying that if he is lucky these will become valuable one day.
In the notes, the great scientist had written that achieving a long-dreamt-of goal did not necessarily guarantee happiness. The note has been written on the stationery of the Imperial Hotel Tokyo, the place where the physicist was staying at that time.
"A calm and humble life will bring more happiness than the pursuit of success and the constant restlessness that comes with it," is the English translation of the note that has originally been written in German.
At the same time, he had written another note as well which reads: "Where there's a will, there's a way." This note sold for $240,000.
