The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations has the following quote under Niels Bohr:

[Of quantum mechanics:] Anybody who is not shocked by this subject has failed to understand it.

Niels Bohr, attributed in Nature, 23 August 1990

Can anyone supply any occurrences of this quote, or variants of it, prior to the 1990 Nature attribution?
