Einstein's 1922 memos written in Tokyo auctioned off for $1.8 mil.

Einstein's 1922 memos written in Tokyo auctioned off for $1.8 mil.

Money can't buy happiness, but $1.56 million can buy Albert Einstein's happiness theory.

A picture taken on October 19, 2017, shows Gal Wiener, owner and manager of the Winner's auction house in Jerusalem, displays two notes written by Albert Einstein, in 1922, on hotel stationary from the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo Japan.

Instead, Einstein wrote two short notes and handed it to the messenger.

A second note, written around the same time, was also auctioned that was finally sold at Dollars 240,000 (Rs 1,55,91,480), according to BBC News. If you are lucky, the notes themselves would someday be worth more than some spare change, Einstein supposedly said.

The note eventually fetched $1.56 million.

NAACP Issues Travel Advisory For American Airlines; Company Agrees To Meeting
They warned people to travel with "extreme caution" following what they said were several discriminatory incidents in the state. The NAACP described "a pattern of disturbing incidents reported by African-American passengers, specific to American Airlines".

It was during this tour that the German-born physicist penned a certain note, defining happiness.

Bidding for the note started at $2,000, but offers for it quickly rose with a bidding war developing between two interested parties.

Einstein suggested in the note that achieving a long-dreamt goal did not necessarily guarantee happiness.

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.

The buyer was a European who wished to remain anonymous, he said.

Billy Joel and wife Alexis Roderick welcome second child
There's another uptown girl in Billy Joel's life! This is the third child for Joel, who is 68, and the second for Roderick, 35. His daughter, who was 18 at the time, served as the maid of honour, while ex-wife Christie also attended the ceremony.

The winning bid far exceeded the pre-auction estimated price of between $5,000 (£3,809) and $8,000 (£6,094), according to the Winner's auction house website.

The seller was reportedly the bellboy's nephew, the BBC reported.

The auction comes after Einstein left his literary estate and personal papers in Israel after founding the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

Einstein was still traveling during the Nobel award ceremony in December 1922, so he was absent when the chairman of the Nobel Committee for Physics said that "there is probably no physicist living today whose name has become so widely known as that of Albert Einstein".
