Origin of Left & Right...  I have often wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left”. 

 By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible: Ecclesiastes 10:2 

New International Version <http://biblehub.com/niv/ecclesiastes/10.htm
The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left. 

English Standard Version <http://biblehub.com/esv/ecclesiastes/10.htm
A wise man’s heart inclines him to the right, but a fool’s heart to the left. 

New American Standard Bible <http://biblehub.com/nasb/ecclesiastes/10.htm
A wise man's heart directs him toward the right, but the foolish man's heart directs him toward the left. 

King James Bible <http://biblehub.com/kjv/ecclesiastes/10.htm
A wise man's heart is at his right hand; but a fool's heart at his left. 

Holman Christian Standard Bible <http://biblehub.com/hcsb/ecclesiastes/10.htm
A wise man's heart goes to the right, but a fool's heart to the left. 

International Standard Version <http://biblehub.com/isv/ecclesiastes/10.htm
A wise man's heart tends toward his right, but a fool's heart tends toward his left. 

Thus sayeth the Lord.  Amen.
