Translation:
Sophocles [writes]: "for never from the mind did you proceed toward left-handed things, child of Telamon, so as to fall upon the flocks."[1] Instead of "For you are not out of your mind to such an extent, that you would attack the sheep without the influence of the gods." The ancients used to call foolish things 'left-handed', and clever things 'right-handed'.
