Today, Google has paid tribute to Nelson Mandela, with a doodle on its homepage. Giving us a glimpse of Mandela's journey, Google has included six of his famous quotes.
At a glance, you will notice the caricature of Mandela fitted in the second letter 'O' of the word 'Google', decorated with flowers. A small arrow on the left side then takes you to a background picture showing small huts that are placed randomly between a quote that reads, "No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion."
Another click on the arrow and it takes you to another image that shows three huts with mountain range and blue sky in the background. It shows another remarkable Mandela quote that reads, "People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite."
The next picture shows a girl and boy looking out of the windows, and a quote etched in between says, "What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead."
The next image Mandela reading in the prison and an apt quote to go with it, " Education is the most powerful weapon which we can use to change the world."
In the next image, one will see a caricature of Mandela on a stage in front of a huge crowd. In his speech, he says,"For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others." The final quote with Mandela's smiling picture reads, "The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time you fall."
Born on 18 July 1918, Nelson Mandela was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician and philanthropist who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. After suffering from a prolonged respiratory infection, Mandela died on 5 December 2013 at the age of 95.
