Google Doodle Celebrate 96th Birthday of Nelson Mandela


Google is showing interactive animated Doodle for celebrating Nelson Mandela's 96th birthday, on July 18, 2014. Google treats visitors to the search engine home page with a visual journey of his life with accompanying six of his remarkable quotes.

Nelson Mandela was born on July 18, 1918, in Mveso, Transkei, South Africa. Becoming actively involved in the anti-apartheid movement in his 20s, Mandela joined the African National Congress in 1942. For 20 years, he directed a campaign of peaceful, nonviolent defiance against the South African government and its racist policies. In 1993, Mandela and South African President F.W. de Klerk were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to dismantle the country's apartheid system. In 1994, Mandela was inaugurated as South Africa's first black president. In 2009, Mandela's birthday (July 18) was declared "Mandela Day" to promote global peace and celebrate the South African leader's legacy. Mandela died at his home in Johannesburg on December 5, 2013, at age 95.

The Doodle is showing below Quotes of Nelson Mandela.


"No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion."


"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."


"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."


"Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world."


"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time you fall."


"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."
