VT #47 p.9

From "Eldarin Hands, Fingers and Numerals"

"No distinction was felt between right and left by the Eldar. There was nothing queer, ill-omened (sinister), weak, or inferior about the 'left.' Nor anything more correct and proper (right), of good omen, or honour about the 'right.' The Eldar were 'ambidexters,' and the allocation of different habitual duties or services to the right or the left was a purely individual and personal matter, undirected by any inherited racial habit"

There are also some brief passages (in quenya!) reprinted in VT 49: 3-4.
