Thursday, Aug. 13, is celebrated as Left-Handers Day, to honor the 10 percent of people whose left hand is dominant. This day was first marked in 1992 by the Left-Handers Club when the group launched an annual event to inform the public about the advantages of being a left-hander.

Nearly 30 million people in the U.S. are left-handed. Eight presidents of the United States, including Barack Obama, were left-handed. Some famous lefties include Angelina Jolie, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney, Tom Cruise, Bruce Willis, Tina Fey, Scarlett Johansson, Jon Stewart, Robert DeNiro, Jim Henson, Whoopi Goldberg, Goldie Hawn, Sarah Jessica Parker, Keanu Reeves, Julia Roberts, Oprah Winfrey and Nicole Kidman.

Here are some fun quotes about lefties:
