They say money can't buy happiness, but apparently it can buy Albert Einstein's thoughts on happiness. At an auction in Jerusalem, Israel, an anonymous donor paid $1.56 million for a note Einstein wrote and gave to a Tokyo bellboy instead of a tip.
A quiet and modest life brings more joy than a pursuit of success bound with constant unrest.
Someone paid $1.5mil for a scrawled note from Einstein saying "a humble life" is the key to happiness, finally killing irony once & for all.— Traci-lvania Twist (@ta_shepard) October 24, 2017
You know what would make me happy? Still having that $1.3M— Pat Ward (@WardDPatrick) October 25, 2017
