Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Esmé Weijun Wang
#1. The psychiatric hierarchy decrees who can and cannot be high-functioning and "gifted." A much-liked meme on Facebook once circulated on my feed, in which a chart listed so-called advantages to various mental illnesses. Depression bestows sensitivity and empathy; attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder allows people to hold large amounts of information at once; anxiety creates useful caution. I knew immediately that schizophrenia wouldn't make an appearance. #Quote by Esmé Weijun Wang
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Steve Silberman
#2. One of the most promising developments since the publication of "The Geek Syndrome" has been the emergence of the concept of neurodiversity: the notion that conditions like autism, dyslexia, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) should be regarded as naturally occurring cognitive variations with distinctive strengths that have contributed to the evolution of technology and culture rather than mere checklists of deficits and dysfunctions. #Quote by Steve Silberman
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Mark Sisson

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Richard Louv
#4. As the nature deficit grows, another emerging body of scientific evidence indicates that direct exposure to nature is essential for physical and emotional health. For example, new studies suggest that exposure to nature may reduce the symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and that it can improve all children's cognitive abilities and resistance to negative stresses and depression. #Quote by Richard Louv
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Allen Frances
#5. 20 years, we have experienced three unanticipated fads partly precipitated by DSM-IV: a 20-fold increase in Autism Spectrum Disorder,7 a tripling of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD),8 and a doubling of Bipolar Disorders.9 The most dangerous fad is a 40-fold increase in childhood Bipolar Disorders,10 stimulated, not by DSM-IV, but instead by reckless and misleading drug company marketing. Twenty percent of the U.S. population11 is taking a psychotropic drug; 7% is addicted to one; and overdoses with legal drugs now cause more emergency room visits than overdoses with illegal drugs. #Quote by Allen Frances
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Jon Kabat-Zinn
#6. From the point of view of the meditative traditions the entire society is suffering from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. #Quote by Jon Kabat-Zinn
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Byung-Chul Han
#7. From a pathological standpoint, the incipient twenty-first century is determined neither by bacteria nor by viruses, but by neurons. Neurological illnesses such as depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), borderline personality disorder (BPD), and burnout syndrome mark the landscape of pathology at the beginning of the twenty-first century. They are not infections, but infarctions; they do not follow from the negativity of what is immunologically foreign, but from an excess of positivity. Therefore, they elude all technologies and techniques that seek to combat what is alien. #Quote by Byung-Chul Han
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Richard Louv
#8. Thoughtful exposure of youngsters to nature can even be a powerful form of therapy for attention-deficit disorders and other maladies. #Quote by Richard Louv
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Paul Krugman
#9. It has been obvious all along, to anyone paying attention, that the politicians shouting loudest about deficits are actually using deficit hysteria as a cover story for their real agenda, which is top-down class warfare. To put it in Romneyesque terms, it's all about finding an excuse to slash programs that help people who like to watch Nascar events, even while lavishing tax cuts on people who like to own Nascar teams. #Quote by Paul Krugman
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Ozzy Osbourne
#10. I'm dyslexic, I have attention-deficit disorder, and I've got something like a hereditary tremor. #Quote by Ozzy Osbourne
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Josh Waitzkin
#11. The learning principle is to plunge into the detailed mystery of the micro in order to understand what makes the macro tick. Our obstacle is that we live in an attention-deficit culture. #Quote by Josh Waitzkin
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Andrew Young
#12. I've been dyslexic and had Attention Deficit Disorder at some time in my life. I still read with a highlighter, but I've always loved to read. #Quote by Andrew Young
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Michael Lewis
#13. attention deficit disorder in his own son. "I had worked in an ADHD clinic during my residency, and had strong feelings that this was overdiagnosed," he said. "That it was a 'savior' diagnosis for too many kids whose parents wanted a medical reason to drug their children, or to explain their kids' bad behavior. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Stephen R. King
#14. Is there a different between Attention Deficit Disorder and daydreaming? He mused. Ah, there I go again. Focus, #Quote by Stephen R. King
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Ann Coulter
#15. If you can somehow force a liberal into a point-counterpoint argument, his retorts will bear no relation to what you've said - unless you were in fact talking about your looks, your age, your weight, your personal obsessions, or whether you are a fascist. In the famous liberal two-step, they leap from one idiotic point to the next, so you can never nail them. It's like arguing with someone with Attention Deficit Disorder. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Tim Ryan
#16. It is like our foreign policy has attention deficit disorder. #Quote by Tim Ryan
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Lionel Shriver
#17. I might be more kindly disposed to this ultra-secular notion that whenever bad things happen someone must be held accountable if a curious little halo of blamelessness did not seem to surround those very people who perceive themselves as bordered on every side by agents of wickedness. That is, it seems to be the same folks who are inclined to sue builders who did not perfectly protect them from the depredations of an earthquake who will be the first to claim that their son failed his math test because of attention deficit disorder, and not because he spent the night before at a video arcade instead of studying complex fractions. #Quote by Lionel Shriver
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Jeremy Miller
#18. I have attention deficit disorder, so sitting in a classroom is not the best thing for me. #Quote by Jeremy Miller
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Edward Hallowell
#19. Several elements of the ADD mind favor creativity ... As mentioned earlier, the term 'attention deficit' is a misnomer. It is a matter of attention inconsistency. While it is true that the ADD mind wanders when not engaged, it is also the case that the ADD mind fastens on to its subject fiercely when it is engaged. A child with ADD may sit for hours meticulously putting together a model airplane. #Quote by Edward Hallowell
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Kyle Dunnigan
#20. My doctor told me i had Attention Deficit Disorder. He said, 'ADD is a complex disorder, blah, blah, blah,' I didn't pay attention to the rest. #Quote by Kyle Dunnigan
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Charles McGrath
#21. Comic books are what novels used to be - an accessible, vernacular form with mass appeal - and if the highbrows are right, they're a form perfectly suited to our dumbed-down culture and collective attention deficit. #Quote by Charles McGrath
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Edward Hirsch
#22. The attention deficit disorder of the culture is very distressing in America now and I think it puts a lot of things at risk, not just poetry. #Quote by Edward Hirsch
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Steven Pressfield
#23. Attention Deficit Disorder, Seasonal Affect Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder. These aren't diseases, they're marketing ploys. Doctors didn't discover them, copywriters did. Marketing departments did. Drug companies did. #Quote by Steven Pressfield
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by S.A. Reid
#24. Oh, and they said I have ADD, too." He lit a cigarette, his first of the day, and took a long, grateful drag. "But listen mate, I once sucked a geezer for twenty minutes to get him off. The clock was just over his shoulder and I timed it. Attention deficit?" He blew out a plume of smoke. "I don't think so. #Quote by S.A. Reid
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Kris Kidd
#25. The game is getting old, and I don't know if it's because I've mastered the art of it, or if I just have some weird attention-deficit-disorder when it comes to getting my way all the time, every time. #Quote by Kris Kidd
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Pseudonymous Bosch
#26. The first expert said he had attention deficit disorder. The second expert said the first was out of order. One said he was autistic, another that he was artistic. One said he had Tourette's syndrome. One said he had Asperger's syndrome. And one said the problem was that his parents had Munchausen syndrome. Still another said all he needed was a good old-fashioned spanking. #Quote by Pseudonymous Bosch
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#27. There is nothing more entertaining then leaving someone speechless. Yet, there is nothing sadder than realizing that person was incapable of retaining half of what you said, and will repeat the story all wrong to someone else. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Temple Grandin
#28. One of the places where research is needed is all the sensory problems. And you get sensory problems not just with autism, but with dyslexia, learning problems, ADHD, attention deficit, you know, things like sound sensitivity, problems with fluorescent lighting. #Quote by Temple Grandin
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Marilyn Vos Savant
#29. Attention-deficit disorders seem to abound in modern society, and we don't know the cause. #Quote by Marilyn Vos Savant
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Helen Fielding
#30. The whole bloody world's got a commitment problem.
It's the three-minute culture. It's a global attention-span deficit. #Quote by Helen Fielding
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Steven Wright
#31. My nephew has HDADHD. High Definition Attention Deficit Disorder. He can barely pay attention, but when he does it's unbelievably clear. #Quote by Steven Wright
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Ellen DeGeneres
#32. Our attention span is shot. We've all got Attention Deficit Disorder or ADD or OCD or one of these disorders with three letters because we don't have the time or patience to pronounce the entire disorder. That should be a disorder right there, TBD - Too Busy Disorder. #Quote by Ellen DeGeneres
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Jere Longman
#33. Baseball may be called the national pastime, but it survives on the sentimentality of middle-age men who wistfully dream of playing catch with their fathers and sons. Football, with its dull stoppages, lost its military-industrial relevance with the end of the Cold War, and has become as tired and predictable in performance as it is in political metaphor. The professional game floats on an ocean of gambling, the players' steroid-laced bodies having outgrown their muscular and skeletal carriages. Biceps rip from their moorings, ankles break on simple pivots. Achilles' tendons shrivel like slugs doused with salt. Soccer and basketball are the only mainstream sports that truly plug into the modem-pulse of a dot-com society. Soccer is perfectly suited for a country of the hamster-treadmill pace, the remote-control zap and the national attention deficit--two 45-minute halves, the clock never stops, no commercial interruptions, the final whistle blows in less than two hours. It is a fluid game of systemized chaos that, no matter how tightly scripted by coaches, cannot be regulated any more than information can be truly controlled on the Internet. #Quote by Jere Longman
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#34. Shaking, I pushed at him and managed to turn my head long enough to gasp, "I can't. No. That's enough, Jack."
He stopped at once. But he kept me against him, his chest moving hard and fast.
I couldn't look at him. My voice was hoarse as I said, "That shouldn't have happened."
"I've wanted this since the first second I saw you." His arms tightened, and he bent over me until his mouth was close to my ear. Gently he whispered, "You did, too."
"I didn't. I don't."
"You need some fun, Ella."
I let out an incredulous laugh. "Believe me, I don't need fun, I need - " I broke off with a gasp as he pressed my hips closer to his. The feel of him was more than my dazzled senses could handle. To my mortification, I hitched up against him before I could stop myself, heat and instinct winning out over sanity.
Feeling the reflexive response, Jack smiled against my scarlet cheek. "You should take me on. I'd be good for you."
"You are so full of yourself . . . and you would not be good for me, with your steaks and power tools and your attention-deficit libido, and . . . I'll bet you're a card-carrying member of the NRA. Admit it, you are." I couldn't seem to shut up. I was talking too much, breathing too fast, jittering like a wind-up toy that had been wound to the limits of its mechanism.
Jack nuzzled into a sensitive place behind my ear. "Why does that matter?"
"Is that a yes? It must be. God. It matters because - stop that. It mat #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Steve Silberman
#35. By autistic standards, the "normal" brain is easily distractible, is obsessively social, and suffers from a deficit of attention to detail and routine. Thus people on the spectrum experience the neurotypical world as relentlessly unpredictable and chaotic, perpetually turned up too loud, and full of people who have little respect for personal space. #Quote by Steve Silberman
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Nora Ephron
#36. Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss. #Quote by Nora Ephron
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Jay Leno
#37. There is a nationwide shortage of drugs for Attention Deficit Disorder. The FDA says they're not sure how it happened. I guess somebody wasn't paying attention. #Quote by Jay Leno
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by David Aaronovitch
#38. Unless the Labour leadership candidates decide to settle the issue through televised mud-wrestling (Adam Boulton, I think, for referee, and he may even take part) they will find it hard to gain massive attention for their utterances. Nor would the wannabes be wise to sign up to Lord Adonis's optimistic gloom about the coalition not lasting. Watching David Laws this week going about deficit reduction with an avidity bordering on the erotic, I realised that there are very good reasons why the centre should hold. #Quote by David Aaronovitch
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by David Lodge
#39. But young parents, educated middle-class ones anyway, are very jumpy these days, they get so much information from the media about all the things that could be wrong with their child - autism, dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, allergies, obesity and so on - they're in a constant state of panic, watching their offspring like hawks for warning signs. #Quote by David Lodge
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Stephen Rodrick
#40. I was a classic attention deficit disorder kid, always bored and mouthing off at school. #Quote by Stephen Rodrick
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by James Vincent McMorrow
#41. I don't know if I'm attention deficit, but I certainly am easily distracted by other things. #Quote by James Vincent McMorrow
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Kelley Armstrong
#42. Rafe didn't just flirt-he charmed girls right up to the point where they fell for him, then he changed his mind.I called him a player with attention deficit disorder. #Quote by Kelley Armstrong
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by George Carlin
#43. When you think about it, attention-deficit order makes a lot of sense. In this country there isn't a lot worth paying attention to. #Quote by George Carlin
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Tanya Masse
#44. I suffer from ADDAD ... Attention Deficit Doing ANYTHING Disorder!
It's where you set a goal to do certain things, then you start to do one thing, but get distracted by other things, which causes you to bounce around from thing to thing only to end up doing a lot of things with nothing to show for it!! #Quote by Tanya Masse
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by A.A. Milne
#45. The word "lesson" came back to Pooh as one he had heard before somewhere.
"There's a thing called Twy-stymes," he said. "Christopher Robin tried to teach it to me once, but it didn't."
"What didn't?" said Rabbit.
"Didn't what?" said Piglet.
Pooh shook his head.
"I don't know," he said. "It just didn't. What are we talking about?"
"Pooh," said Piglet reproachfully, "haven't you been listening to what Rabbit was saying?"
"I listened, but I had a small piece of fluff in my ear. Could you say it again, please, Rabbit? #Quote by A.A. Milne
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Gabor Mate
#46. Throughout the human life span there remains a constant two-way interaction between psychological states and the neurochemistry of the frontal lobes, a fact that many doctors do not pay enough attention to. One result is the overreliance on medications in the treatment of mental disorders. Modern psychiatry is doing too much listening to Prozac and not enough listening to human beings; people's life histories should be given at least as much importance as the chemistry of their brains. The dominant tendency is to explain mental conditions by deficiencies of the brain's chemical messengers, the neurotransmitters.

As Daniel J. Siegel has sharply remarked, "We hear it said everywhere these days that the experience of human beings comes from their chemicals." Depression, according to the simple biochemical model, is due to a lack of serotonin - and, it is said, so is excessive aggression. The answer is Prozac, which increases serotonin levels in the brain. Attention deficit is thought to be due in part to an undersupply of dopamine, one of the brain's most important neurotransmitters, crucial to attention and to experiencing reward states. The answer is Ritalin. Just as Prozac elevates serotonin levels, Ritalin or other psychostimulants are thought to increase the availability of dopamine in the brain's
prefrontal areas.

This is believed to increase motivation and attention by improving the functioning of areas in the prefrontal cortex. Although the #Quote by Gabor Mate
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Graham Allison
#47. I am a congenital optimist about America, but I worry that American democracy is exhibiting fatal symptoms. DC has become an acronym for Dysfunctional Capital: a swamp in which partisanship has grown poisonous, relations between the White House and Congress have paralyzed basic functions like budgets and foreign agreements, and public trust in government has all but disappeared. These symptoms are rooted in the decline of a public ethic, legalized and institutionalized corruption, a poorly educated and attention-deficit-driven electorate, and a 'gotcha' press - all exacerbated by digital devices and platforms that reward sensationalism and degrade deliberation. Without stronger and more determined leadership from the president and a recovery of a sense of civic responsibility among the governing class, the United States may follow Europe down the road of decline. #Quote by Graham Allison
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Richard Louv
#48. Nature-deficit disorder describes the human costs of alienation from nature, among them: diminished use of the senses, attention difficulties, and higher rates of physical and emotional illness. This disorder can be detected in individuals, families, and communities. #Quote by Richard Louv
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder quotes by Mitch Hedberg
#49. A friend gave me a drug for attention deficit disorder, because he's afflicted, but I'm not. So what happened to me is I suddenly had an extra-long attention span. People would tell me a story, and it would end, and I'd get all mad. "Come on, man, there has to be more to that story." #Quote by Mitch Hedberg
