The theory exposed on two notes written in 1922 sustains something different as he own life was, because he suggested that achieving a long-dreamt-of goal did not necessarily guarantee happiness. Einstein just saw he had won the Nobel Prize for physics at the moment and was in Japan and wrote the note on a paper given to a courier instead of money.
Signed with his name, the note said in German: “A calm and humble life will bring more happiness than the pursuit of success and the constant restlessness that comes with it.” A second note written at the same time says: “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.” It sold for $240,000, Winner’s auction house said. The buyer of one of the notes was a European who wished to remain anonymous. The seller was the nephew of the messenger who received the documents from Einstein. “This is a stone in the mosaic, ” Roni Grosz, the archivist overseeing the Einstein archives at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem told to media. “Of all the people I have met, I like the Japanese the most, as they are modest, intelligent, considerate, and have a feel for the art,” Einstein appreciated his visit in Japan in 1922.
