Some palmistry bunkum:
The palm contains lines pertaining to fate, life, the heart, the head and health. These are the areas on the fingers which pertain to certain qualities (first section up to tip):
thumb - love (ball of the thumb), logic, will
index finger - domination, ambition, religion
digitus impudicus - success, recreation, impulse
ring finger - vanity, pessimism, optimism
pinkie - cunning, purpose, oratory
