Albert Einstein’s Advice On Happiness Written On A Paper Sells For £1.18 million At An Auction.

‘A calm and humble life will bring more happiness than the pursuit of success and the constant restlessness that comes with it.’

 

A picture taken on October 19, 2017, shows Gal Winner, owner and manager of the Winner's auction house in Jerusalem, displays one of two notes written by Albert Einstein, in 1922, on hotel stationary from the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo Japan.  A note that Albert Einstein gave to a courier in Tokyo, briefly describing his theory on happy living, has surfaced after 95 years and is up for auction in Jerusalem.

 

 

Scribbled briefly on a piece of paper, this advice from Albert Einstein was sold for £1.18 at an auction.

This scribbled paper was given to a bellboy instead of tip from Albert Einstein and told him that it would be worth than a tip one day if he kept hold of it.

Around 100 years later the prediction came true, not for the bellboy buy for his nephew who contacted an auction house to put it up for sale.

Einstein wrote his take on life while staying at a hotel in Tokyo in 1922, just after he had been told he was going to be given the Nobel prize in physics.

Winner’s Auctions and Exhibitions in Jerusalem organised the sale of the note, along with another which he wrote at the same time saying ‘Where there’s a will there’s a way.’

The happiness note was only expected to sell for between $5,000 (£3,809) and $8,000 (£6,094), but it clearly meant something special to someone.

Written at the height of his success, there’s speculation Einstein might have been musing on his career so far. It shows he had daily concerns to think about too, just like the rest of us – although the rest of us didn’t work out the Special Theory of Relativity.
