The Genius from the 20th century was traveling on a lecture tour when he had a stop at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo.  A Bell boy had delivered a message to him, Einstein fished in his pocket for a tip, but came up short. Instead, Einstein offered a tip in the form of his theory on how to have a happy life.

“A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness,” he wrote in German on a piece of hotel stationery.

On a second sheet, he wrote, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”

Einstein told the bellboy, according to the auction house, that if he was lucky, the notes might become more valuable than a regular tip. His words, befitting a man who had transformed our comprehension of the universe, were prophetic.

That note was a truly huge success, way more profitable than a tip. It sold at auction for 1.56 million dollars. Way more than any tip could ever be.
