That’s Baller – Albert Einstein Note About Happiness Sells For $1.56M at Auction - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Back in 1922, AlbertEinstein penned two notes during his trip to Japan from Europe, where he received the Nobel Prize for physics. At the time, the then-43-year-old genius was staying at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo. Overcome with emotion by the Japanese’s excitement to be in his presence, Einstein quickly scribbled two notes, written in German, about maintaining happiness and success, and gifted them to a messenger, who brought him a delivery. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness,” one of the notes read. According to reports, the note hit the auction block at $2,000, but after 25 minutes, the note was sold for a whopping $1.56 million. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The second note, which read, “where there’s a will there’s a way,” went for $240,000.
