Here’s some positivity for Our Friday blog, because how can you be angry at wanting to be a Unicorn?
I really liked this story about Einstein! (Washington Post) His theory on happiness sold for over a million dollars.
It was around November of 1922. Einstein was traveling from Europe to Japan for a series of lectures that he was giving. During his tour, the 43-year-old learned that he was being awarded the Nobel Prize in physics, for his contributions to theoretical physics.
According to the attached article, those autographed notes where Einstein offered his thoughts on how to live a happy and fulfilling life, recently sold at a Jerusalem auction house for a combined $1.8 million. Here is what the notes read:
“A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness,” reads one of the notes, written in German on the hotel’s stationery. It sold for $1.56 million.
The other note said, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way”. That note sold at auction for $240,000.
That is still good advice!
I hope you have a great weekend… and that you get lots of sleep!
