You Still Can’t Buy Happiness

Someone has paid $1.5 million for Albert Einstein’s notes on the theory for happiness. This has to be some sort of attempt at art by someone with more money than sense.

You can’t buy happiness but you can buy the theory of happiness, I can almost hear the half choked lone cackle at this persons next engagement, coupled with the somber realisation that they have just spanked a cartoonish sum of money on a terrible attempt at a joke.

The note is written in German but roughly translates (because translations are all rough) to something like, “A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness.”

There you go I saved you a lot of money with that, no need to offer me anything for it just pay it forward. Calm and modest right here, I’m living the rich life already!
