Lefty Sayings

There are a number of sayings about left-handers: some positive, some negative. Let us know about any others you have heard.

Lefty Trivia

It is generally accepted that the hand you write with defines your handedness. However, many people use their other hand for other major activities, such as throwing a ball or batting.

Our Education Campaign

Lefty's Links

There are a number of great web sites around the world that focus on various aspects of left-handedness. Some are big, others small. Some serious, some fun. Some general, some specific. We do not endorse any of them nor do we necessarily agree with them either.

Anyway, here are some that we liked:
