Einstein's note with happiness theory sold for 1.56 mln Dollars

26 October 2017

In November 1922 Einstein was traveling from Europe to Japan for a speaking tour when he learned he'd been awarded his field's highest prize: the Nobel Prize in physics.

According to the CEO of Winner's Auctions and Exhibitions, Einstein assumed that the note would someday be worth more than a regular tip.

It said the buyer of one of the notes was a European who wished to remain anonymous.

One note says that 'a quiet and modest life brings more joy than a pursuit of success bound with constant unrest'.

The memos have drawn attention as they indicate the German-born Nobel laureate's theory of happiness.

Impressed but a little embarrassed by the publicity, Einstein tried to write his thoughts and feelings on paper at the hotel, it added.

It just sold for $1.56 million.

Bidding in person, by phone, and online started at $2,000.

A second note written by Einstein at the same time on a blank piece of paper that simply reads "where there's a will, there's a way" was sold at a price of 240,000 US dollars, said the auction.

But the seller of the happiness note said: "I am really happy that there are people out there who are still interested in science and history and timeless deliveries in a world which is developing so fast".

The seller was reported to be a relative of the messenger.

Einstein served as a non-resident governor of Jerusalem's Hebrew University. "This is a stone in the mosaic".

The world-renowned theoretical physicist Albert Einstein is known for presenting the world with the Theory of Relativity, but now he is making headlines for something else.
