“Albert Einstein was not a rich man and he was a bit absent minded.
Since Albert Einstein had created the theory of relativity and had come an international science superstar, he was in Tokyo Japan and was eating at a restaurant, he paid his bill, but didn’t have enough money to pay the tip. Mr. Einstein was known as a kind and gentle man, with a great sense of humor, so he wrote 2 notes tot he server and told the man they would one day be worth more than the paper they were written on in the future.
Of course, with his sense of humor, he probably thought that it would be some kind of novelty that people would want to see, but I doubt that he, or the server, ever imagined those 2 notes would be worth $1.56 million almost a century later.
As for what one note said, they were Albert Einstein’s recipe to be happy:
“A calm and modest life brings m ore happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness”
The other note read:
“Where there’s a will there’s a way”
