Here are some quotes bout Shrimad Bhagavad Gita by some famous people.

“When doubts haunt me, when disappointments stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagavad-gita and find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. Those who meditate on the Gita will derive fresh joy and new meanings from it every day.

-- Mahatma Gandhi (Spiritual/Political Leader of India; officially honoured in India as the Father of the Nation)

“When I read the Bhagavad Gita and reflect about how God created this universe everything else seems so superfluous.”

-- Albert Einstein (One of the most influential scientists of all time)

From a clear knowledge of the Bhagavad-Gita all the goals of human existence become fulfilled. Bhagavad-Gita is the manifest quintessence of all the teachings of the Vedic scriptures.

Pujyapad Shrimad Adi Shankaracharyaji (The great Indian Philosopher who consolidated the doctrine of Advaita Vedanta)
The marvel of the Bhagavad-Gita is its truly beautiful revelation of life's wisdom which enables philosophy to blossom into religion.

-- Herman Hesse (German-born Swiss novelist, poet, and painter)

One of the most cited and least-interpreted quotations
from the history of the atomic age is what J. Robert Oppenheimer
claimed to have thought when he witnessed the world’s
first nuclear explosion: “I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.”
Shortly after Oppenheimer, director of the laboratory that developed
the atomic bomb, saw the fireball glowing over the New Mexico desert
at the Trinity test site on 16 July 1945, those words derived from the
Hindu scripture the Bhagavad-Gita came to his mind.

“divi sUryasahasrasya bhavedyugapadutthitA .
yadi bhAH sadR^ishI sA syAdbhAsastasya mahAtmanaH ..
Chapter 11, Verse 12 “

If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst into the sky,
that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One

“kAlo.asmi lokakShayakR^itpravR^iddho lokAnsamAhartumiha pravR^ittaH .
R^ite.api tvA.n na bhaviShyanti sarve ye.avasthitAH pratyanIkeShu yodhAH ..
Ch. 11 Verse 32”

I am the worlddestroying Time, [Time: The supreme God with His limiting adjunct of the power of action.] grown in stature [Pravrddhah, mighty-according to S.-Tr.] and now engaged in annihilating the creatures.Even without you, all the warriors who are arrayed in the confronting armies will cease to exist!

The Bhagavad Gita is a true scripture of the human race a living creation rather than a book, with a new message for every age and a new meaning for every civilization. [

-- Shri Arvind Ghosh (Indian freedom fighter, Yogi, Philosopher, major Indian English poet)

Four Kinds Of Men

7: 16
Four kinds of virtuous men worship Me, O Arjuna, the dissatisfied, the seeker of (systematised) knowledge, the seeker of wealth, and the wise, O best among the Bharatas.

Gandhi read it whenever he was disapponted by the world. The readers can well judge where Gandhi and others stood according to the Gita verse 7:16.
