THERE ARE TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY (COIN) - "There's always a different point of view, which is entitled to be heard. The proverb has been traced back in English to 1742, and is first attested in the United States in the 1802 'Diary and Autobiography of John Adams' and an 1817 letter of Thomas Jefferson. The proverb was first expressed in ancient times, as far back as 485-410 B.C. Protagoras said that 'there are two sides to every question.' In about 428 B.B., Euripides said, 'In a case of dissension, never dare to judge till you've heard the other side.' The word argument, coin, everything, question or quarrel may replace (every) story." From "Random House Dictionary of Popular Proverbs and Sayings" by Gregory Y. Titelman (Random House, New York, 1996).
