opposite sides

‘They will never agree’, said the 19th century wit, the Reverend Sidney Smith, when he saw two women shouting at each other from houses on opposite sides of an Edinburgh street, ‘they are arguing from different premises’.

Quoted in Chapter 8, Cultural Theory, Climate Change and Clumsiness by Michael Thompson. (H-t. RSA blog.)
