Inspirational Quotes for ADHD

(Aside: I started this part of my blog before I realized this was a humor blog.  Oops.  Turns out it is the single most popular feature of my entire blog, so I figure I should keep it around.  The posts that go with the quotes are pretty serious–akin to an obituary.  Read them and laugh if you will.  Also, because this page is so popular, be aware that many, many more quotes are on their way.  I’m just getting my ducks in a row.  Check back soon–or the next time you are writing an essay about ADHD (which, let’s face it, is probably what brings you here.))

Here are quotes I’ve ferreted out of the Internets that I feel have special applicability to ADHD (especially the inattentive subtype, but many applicable to all subtypes).  Though I don’t take the time to verify the authenticity of every quote (I’m inattentive, okay?), I do the best I can to make sure they are accurate.  More importantly, I feel that each captures an idea that someone who struggles with ADHD, or someone who knows somebody who does, could feel refreshed and aided by.
