Bhagawad Gita Quotes (By Non-Indians)

The Bhagawad Gita is considered by many to be a supreme scripture of Hinduism, which deals with almost every aspect of a human’s life. More than a devotional script, the Bhagawad Gita is a guide for mankind to live righteously and happily on this earth. We young Indians often have the tendency to attribute greatness to anything, only if it is recognized by a foreigner, and hence i am contributing this collection of quotes by famous non-Indians.I would also like to add that it is definitely a shame that we fail to recognize the infinite greatness of our Indian scriptures unless told to do so by someone else.
