Einstein '1922 hotel notes' on auction in Jerusalem

Einstein '1922 hotel notes' on auction in Jerusalem”

Around 100 years later, his prediction was proved correct - as the note made the bellboy's nephew a millionaire when he contacted an auction house to put it up for sale.

The buyer who has acquired the document, added by phone is a European who wished to remain anonymous.

The Winner's auction house said that Albert Einstein scribbled the note in German to a bellboy while traveling in Japan in Y 1922 after he did not have cash to give him a tip.

He had just been informed of his upcoming nomination for the Nobel prize in physics, and its reputation started to grow beyond the scientific community.

One note, on the stationery of the Imperial Hotel Tokyo, says that "a quiet and modest life brings more joy than a pursuit of success bound with constant unrest".

He is better known for the theory of relativity, rather than giving life advice.

Winner's Auctions and Exhibitions in Jerusalem organised the sale of the note, along with another which he wrote at the same time saying "Where there's a will there's a way" (this one seems less genius).

The story goes that a Japanese courier delivered Einstein a message at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo. On the second sheet, white, Einstein refers to the adage: "where There's a will there's a way".

Hitherto unknown to researchers, these handwritten notes have been authenticated by the auction house victor s.

"What we're doing here is painting the portrait of Einstein - the man, the scientist, his effect on the world - through his writings", said Roni Grosz, the archivist in charge of the world's largest Einstein collection, at Jerusalem's Hebrew University.
