EINSTEIN’S THEORY OF HAPPINESS SELLS FOR $1.3 MILLION AT AUCTION - While Albert Einstein’s theory of happiness may be relative, it fetched $1.3 million at a Jerusalem auction recently. The Nobel-winning scientist’s musings, on a handwritten note, may not be as famous as his groundbreaking theory of relativity, but they still shed light on one of the great modern mids. Winner’s Auctions and Exhibitions said Einstein was traveling in Japan in 1922 when he was told he would be awarded the Nobel Prize in physics. In Tokyo, Einstein scribbled the note in German to a bellboy after he did not have cash to give him a tip.
