It's probably better to have him inside the tent pissing out, than Outside the tent pissing in.lyndon b. johnson
A person in a rented apartment must be able to lean out of his window and scrape off the masonry within arm's reach. And he must be allowed to take a long brush and paint everything Outside within arm's reach. So that it will be visible from afar to everyone in the street that someone lives there who is different from the imprisoned, enslaved, standardised man who lives next door.friedensreich hundertwasser
Whatever analogy we choose, one thing is clear - any group with influence needs people Outside that group who will criticise it. In the real world of politics and society, journalists do that - proper journalists who know what having principles means, who aim for objectivity while accepting that it is unattainable, and who are open about who pays them and who they work with.bill thompson

Because he attempted to tell (his painting ['The Jewish Cemetery'] that which is Outside the reach of art... there are ruins to indicate old age, a stream to signify the course of life, and rocks and precipices to shadow forth its dangers. But how are we to discover all this?john constable
Football is the most important thing in my life, but I do have a life Outside football and this is one part. The TV, the music, the fashion - it all goes to make up Rio Ferdinand.rio ferdinand

The great Christian art did not die because all possible forms had been used up; it died because faith was being transformed into piety. Now, the same conquest of the Outside world that brought in our modern individualism, so different from that of the Renaissance, is by way of relativizing the individual. It is plain to see that man's faculty of transformation, which began by a remaking of the natural world, has ended by calling man himself into question.andré malraux
Some Blockett-type employees actually believe that they have received a genuine promotion; others recognize the truth. But the main function of a pseudo-promotion is to deceive people Outside the hierarchy. When this is achieved, the maneuver is counted a success.Laurence J. Peter

Paradoxically, the simpler poetry is, the more difficult it becomes for a critic to discuss intelligently. Trained to explicate, the critic often loses the ability to evaluate literature Outside the critical act.

The fundamentalists, by "knowing" the answers before they start, and then forcing nature into the straitjacket of their discredited preconceptions, lie Outside the domain of science or of any honest intellectual inquiry.stephen jay gould
To find the cause of our ills in something Outside ourselves, something specific that can be spotted and eliminated, is a diagnosis that cannot fail to appeal. To say that the cause of our troubles is not in us but in the Jews , and pass immediately to the extermination of the Jews, is a prescription likely to find a wide acceptance.Eric Hoffer
That peace which is within us, we must experience it. And if we are searching for peace Outside we will never find the peace within.maharaji (prem rawat)
Democracy cannot be imposed on any nation from the Outside. Each society must search for its own path, and no path is perfect.Barack Obama
Sappho is a great poet because she is a lesbian, which gives her erotic access to the Muse. Sappho and the homosexual-tending Emily Dickinson stand alone above women poets, because poetry's mystical energies are ruled by a hierach requiring the sexual subordination of her petitioners. Women have achieved more as novelists than as poets because the social novel operates Outside the ancient marriage of myth and eroticism.camille paglia
The "cumulative effects" of unbridled commercialism, however difficult to assess, constitute one key to the impact of growing up in the core of the world's marketing system. Minimally, it suggests unpreparedness for, and lack of interest in, the world that exists Outside the shopping mall.herbert schiller

...in the period from 1923 to 1948, known as the Bharata Natyam revival. Performers, critics, and promoters through Bharata Natyam to the urban proscenium stage, recontextualizing and renaming it. In doing so they crafted a genealogy in which Bharat Natyam came to represent ancient tradition and critical experimentation, nationalism, regional identities and the global transference forms Outside of geographical and cultural boundaries.
If we see [our lives] from the Outside, as the influence and popular dissemination of the social sciences and psychiatry has persuaded more and more people to do, we view ourselves as instances of generalities, and in so doing become profoundly and painfully alienated from our own experience and our humanity.

At the ballet, you really feel like you're in the presence of something Outside the rest of your life . Higher than the rest of your life.
Prayer is perpetual stillness of the heart, a surrendering to yourself as the aspect of God within you. Prayer is not beseeching an entity Outside us for favors, but acknowledging the presence within us...
