Einstein stayed in a secluded room at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo. When a courier came to his room to make a delivery and clean the room, he had no money to tip him with. Instead, he handed the messenger a note written in Germany:

“A calm and humble life will bring more happiness than the pursuit of success and the constant restlessness that comes with it.”

This note sold for $1.56 million.

Another second note, which Einstein wrote at the same time, sold for $240,000. This one said:

“Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”

The buyer’s and seller’s identity have both been kept private at their request.
