More letters at auction!…This time they were written by Albert Einstein during a visit he made to Tokyo in 1922.
A courier arrived at the Imperial Hotel Tokyo to deliver a message to Mr. Einstein. By way of a tip, he wrote the above notes for the messenger. The top note says in German that “a quiet and modest life brings more joy than the pursuit of success bound with constant unrest.”
The second note merely says, “Where there is a will there’s a way.”
These handwritten wise words were auctioned in Jerusalem today. “A quiet modest life…” fetched $1.56 MILLION. And “Where there is a will…”sold for $240,000!
Talk about the value of a handwritten letter!
