Left eye

Posted by Dave Jackson on August 23, 2007

I am looking for understanding to references to the "left eye". I've overhead sayings, such as "I'll shoot him in the left eye", and Norse gods giving their left eye for ravens. Why the left eye? Is there some mystical association with this eye, wisdom perhaps? References on the web seem sketchy at best.
