At bottom, the court's opinion is thus a rejection of the common sense of the American people, who have recognized a need to prevent corporations from undermining self-government since the founding, and who have fought against the distinctive corrupting potential of corporate electioneering since the days of Theodore Roosevelt. It is a strange time to repudiate that common sense. While American democracy is imperfect, few outside the majority of this court would have thought its flaws included a dearth of corporate money in politics.
Outside the open window, the morning air is all awash with angels.Richard Wilbur
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
We are tired of having a 'sphere' doled out to us, and of being told that anything Outside that sphere is 'unwomanly'. We want to be natural just for a change… we must be ourselves at all risks.kate sheppard

It was a walled city and the European trading companies settled Outside the fort area all along the river front.

I've often said there's nothing better for the inside of a man than the Outside of a horse.ronald reagan
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
"I may be controversial, but my allegiance is to people Outside the Beltway."howard dean
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
It’s probably better to have him inside the tent pissing out, than Outside the tent pissing in.

Thanks to my memory, which enabled me to quote Latin and to discuss Greek and Roman civilization, it became obvious to some of my colleagues in other fields that I was interested in things Outside mathematics. This lead quickly to very pleasant relationships.stanislaw ulam
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. A work is good only in proportion to the richness and complexity of interpretations it provokes.dana gioia
Science is a method for testing claims about the natural world, not an immutable compendium of absolute truths. 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
Man is naturally self-centered and he is inclined to regard expediency as the supreme standard for what is right and wrong. However, we must not convert an inclination into an axiom that just as man's perceptions cannot operate Outside time and space, so his motivations cannot operate Outside expediency; that man can never transcend his own self. The most fatal trap into which thinking may fall is the equation of existence and expediency.abraham joshua heschel
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)
It's extremely dangerous trying to resolve political problems Outside the framework of the law first the ‘Rose Revolution', then they'll think up something like blue. [word play here: "rose" having the colloquial sense of "lesbian" in modern Russian, and "blue" meaning "gay"]vladimir putin

...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.
...in the Kathak format, which have for long been forgotten by solo dancers. In their impulse to gain instant popularity they have concentrated only on what brings an instant response from the audiences. To this day I have not had to look Outside the Kathak technique for movements and forms.
The obviously plagiarized historical argument of the Macedonian nationalists for a separate Macedonian ethnicity could be supported only by linguistic reality, and that worked against them until the 1940s. Until a modern Macedonian literary language was mandated by the socialist-led partisan movement from Macedonia in 1944, most Outside observers and linguists agreed with the Bulgarians in considering the vernacular spoken by the Macedonian Slavs as a western dialect of Bulgarian.Dennis P. Hupchick
What's the matter with this country is the matter with the lot of us individually our sense of personality is a sense of outrage and we'll never get Outside of it.
