Non Muslims Quotesn: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe 28 August 1749  – 22 March 1832
"However often we turn to it [the Koran] at first disgusting us each time afresh, it soon attracts, astounds, and in the end enforces our reverence. . . . Its style, in accordance with its contents and aim is stern, grand, terrible - ever and anon truly sublime - Thus this book will go on exercising through all ages a most potent influence."

-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe -

Ref:Quoted in T.P. Hughes' Dictionary of Islam, p-526.
