Einstein’s Theory of Happiness


Hopefully you are having a wonderful day.  I know the online world is always American-centric, even more so on Thanksgiving, so I’ll leave it at that: A wonderful day, however you’re spending it.

While you eat your turkey/tofurky (or don’t eat your turkey/tofurky), I leave you with this positive thought: Einstein’s Theory of Happiness.

Yes, he had one, and he scribbled it down on two notes that recently sold for over 1 million dollars.  Money, by the way, is not part of the theory of happiness.

The theory of happiness is: “A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness.”

His second thought: “Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”

Wishing everyone a calm and modest life, with plenty of willpower.

Happy wonderful day too you, too! I love the theory of happiness. I love that the brilliant scientist with the crazy hair just wants things to slow down a bit.

How did I manage to get this far into my life without ever hearing of Einstein’s Theory of Happiness? Thanks for sharing it here.
