"Similarly, thought is a system. That system not only includes thought and feelings, but it includes the state of the body it includes the whole of society - as thought is passing back and forth between people in a process by which thought evolved from ancient times."
"You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty."David Bohm on Mahatma Gandhi
"An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life."David Bohm on Robert A. Heinlein
"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society."David Bohm on Jiddu Krishnamurti
"A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both."David Bohm on Dwight D. Eisenhower
"There is more to life than increasing its speed."David Bohm on Mahatma Gandhi
"During the past few decades, modern technology, with radio, TV, air travel, and satellites, has woven a network of communication which puts each part of the world in to almost instant contact with all the other parts."
"Yet, in spite of this world-wide system of linkages, there is, at this very moment, a general feeling that communication is breaking down everywhere, on an unparalleled scale."
"The ability to perceive or think differently is more important than the knowledge gained."
"Yet it looks as if the thing we use to solve our problems with is the source of our problems. It's like going to the doctor and having him make you ill. In fact, in 20% of medical cases we do apparently have that going on. But in the case of thought, its far over 20%."
"Then there is the further question of what is the relationship of thinking to reality. As careful attention shows, thought itself is in an actual process of movement."
