Fernando Pessoa on Google

If you go to Google today you'll find this picture instead of the regular Google logo.

This makes be very happy. In fact it makes me twice happy. First, because I featured this quote from him this year, on March 16.
But most of all because Fernando Pessoa is an example of someone who was a genius (several times a genius if you count that kind of thing by his heteronyms - 81 counted on Wikipedia) that didn't look for any kind of fame. His values were much, much greater than that.
But he got recognition for his genius never the less, even if that happen long after he was dead.
I can assure you that if you read anything he wrote he'll get you thinking. Still today.
