Shortly after being notified he had won the Nobel Prize, Albert Einstein traveled to Japan to present a series of lectures.
As the news spread quickly, Einstein's fame began to grow while in Japan. When Einstein arrived at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo in 1922, he did not have a tip available for the messenger.
Instead, Einstein gave the gentleman two notes that reveal the secret to happiness. Before the courier left, Einstein told him, “Maybe if you're lucky those notes will become much more valuable than just a regular tip.”
The first one was written on an official paper of the Imperial Hotel. It says:
"A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness."
The second one was written on a blank piece of paper saying:
"Where there's a will there's a way."
Einstein signed and dated both. The two notes will go on sale in Jerusalem at the Winner's Auction House.
