In 1922, Einstein was on a lecture tour in Japan. Having gained achieved popularity with his recognition for the theory of special and general relativity, he left a note in place of a tip to a courier at the hotel. The story goes he either didn’t have any change on him or that the courier refused the tip as was local custom at the time.
The notes were hidden for 95 years and were recently on the auction block, fetching a whopping 1.7 million to an undisclosed buyer.

It is true that imagination is everything when it comes to the power of human will. In fact, Einstein was famous for saying that “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” With the ability to explore new concepts and take on new thoughts, imagination can take you places you’ve never before known or realized existed.
