Einstein's note with happiness theory sold for 1.56 mln United States dollars

Albert Einstein's note on the theory of happiness sold on Tuesday for $1.3 million at a Jerusalem auction, handing over the scientist's 1922 musings to unknown buyers.

It is reported that in November 1922, the great physicist, who came from lectures in Japan, recently learned about the awarding of the Nobel prize and paginasexo the first fruits of global fame, was not at hand change for a tip.

And the auction proved that to be the case after bids started at $2,000 (£1,500), going past the $1m mark in a 25-minute bidding war.

He had recently been informed that he was going to receive the Nobel Prize for physics, and his fame outside of scientific circles was growing.

"A quiet and modest life gives more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness", reads the advice from Einstein on the letterhead of the hotel.

Either way, Einstein didn't want the messenger to leave empty-handed, so he wrote him two notes by hand in German, according to the seller, a relative of the messenger.

He was placed on electric ankle monitoring and surrendered his passport as a condition of making bond the next day. Wesley Mathews reportedly waited until after sunrise before reporting Sherin's disappearance to the police.

Another note Einstein addressed to the porter, which read "where there's a will there's a way", sold for $240,000 (£182,000).

The buyer was a European who wished to remain anonymous, he said. It sold for $1.56 million, according to the auction house.

The seller of the notes was reported to be the messenger's kin.

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.

Einstein died in 1955 and also once declined an invitation to serve as Israel's first president in the years before his death.
