Positive left-handed sayings

We often see so many negative things said about lefthanders and language often works against us so we thought we would start this newsletter by focussing on some POSITIVE quotes and sayings about lefthanders. Here are some of the best ones we have seen and you can use this link to see this article online and add any more you know by commenting there.

“If the left side of your brain controls the right side of your body, and the right side of your brain controls the left side of your body, then left-handed people must be the only ones in their right minds.”
~ W.C. Fields

I may be left-handed but I am always right!

This was actually created many years ago by Keith Milsom and his father Reg when brainstorming for ideas to put on badges, but can now be found all over the internet. We actually did a set of 3 badges to change depending on your mood – the picture on the right is from one of our very old catalogues.

Left-handers are wired into the artistic half of the brain, which makes them imaginative, creative, surprising, ambiguous, exasperating, stubborn, emotional, witty, obsessive, infuriating, delightful, original, but never, never, dull.
James T deKay

The next two are a couple of variations on a theme:

Everybody is born right handed, but only the strongest of people are able to over come it!

Everybody is born left handed, you only turn right handed after you commit your first sin

An early biblical reference to left-handers being very talented fighters:

And the children of Benjamin were numbered at that time out of the cities twenty and six thousand men that drew sword. Among all this people there were 700 chosen men lefthanded; every one could sling stones at an hair breadth and not miss.
Bible: Judges 20 v 15

Lefties – in great demand but limited supply!
Origin unknown, but we like it.

    Why are left-handed people not featured in adult education brochures? The same goes for magazines – you never see a lefty in these publications doing some cookery, or writing! – do adult education centres not want us taking part in their courses? ! I used to take part in working holidays with British Trust for Conservation Volunteers and on one project, I was helping to prepare some vegetables – the leader – male- criticised me for holding the knife the wrong way round, he later apologised when he realised I was left-handed – he was a lefty himself!
