People think, and so did I when I was young, that ADHD is, "This kid can't pay attention," when in fact what it means is, you are unable to control what you pay attention to. So generally when you have ADHD, you are paying more attention than most people, but to the wrong thing. ~ Trevor Noah

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is characterized by difficulty paying attention, excessive activity, and behavior without regards to consequences which is not appropriate for a person's age.

Quotes

  • I'm tired of kissin' ass.
    I can't sit still all day.
    You know I know your school's a lie.
    That's why you dragged me here.
    'You're a hyperactve child.
    You're disruptive.
    You're too wild.
    We're going to calm you down.
    Now this won't hurt a bit
    .'
    Drag me to the floor
    Pullin' down my pants
    Ram a needle up my butt
    Put my brain into a trance.
    'No more hyperactive child.
    Got too much of a mind.
    Wouldn't you rather be happy?
    Now this won't hurt a bit.'
    Cameras in the halls.
    No windows, just brick walls.
    Pledge allegiance to a flag.
    Now you will obey.

  • I think many comedians have ADHD. I think many comedians become comedians and are good comedians because they have ADHD, because it's such a perfect environment for ADHD.
